Wow, thanks for sharing @michaelotto! Especially when one of the key challenges of combating sex trafficking is the reluctance of victims to step up and report the abuse due to intimidation, social stigma, etc, I think this program will go miles by encouraging former victims / fellow female warriors to support each other. Can’t wait to see this program spur the growth of female representation in court :fist:

This reminded me of a new yorker article I read a while back about a female attorney working to fight for justice of fellow victims of “revenge porn.” It’s long but fascinating and worthwhile to read: http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2016/12/05/the-attorney-fighting-revenge-porn
