Shedding a Light on the Global Sex Trade and its Victims at the Rothko Chapel
Monday, November 6, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The Rothko Chapel is hosting a program focused on global sex trafficking — and the impossible situation many women around the world face every day.
“Double jeopardy: Women and the Criminal Justice System,” a conversation with author
Julie Bindel, featuring program presenter, Dr. Andrea Link is slated for 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov 6 at the nonprofit, located at 3900 Yupon in Houston. A book signing will take place after the talk, during a public reception on the plaza.
Bindel and Link will discuss the local and global realities for women impacted by sex trafficking. These individuals are victims and yet also being prosecuted as offenders.
Bindle will be in Houston as part of a national tour for her most recent book, “The Pimping of Prostitution,” which approaches the debate on prostitution legislation head-on, contrasting the lives of women in the global sex trade with the dominant discourse in current academic and liberal feminist debates.
The event is a continuation of the Chapel’s mission to raise awareness about criminal justice reform globally and locally, illustrating the cultural and personal ramifications of the issue in preparation for the 2017 Óscar Romero Awards.
