Trafficking of women and girls is a form of gender-based violence, based on inequality, said participants at an event organized on 15 March 2018 by the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) on the side-lines of the 62nd meeting of the UN Commission on the Status of Women, in New York, (CSW62).
The event, which focused on the need to take the experiences of survivors into account when developing responses, was co-organized with UNODC, UN Women, the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women and Equality Now.
The event also featured a presentation of the photo project The New Abolitionists(www.newyorksnewabolitionists.com), dedicated to raising awareness about slavery and trafficking in human beings by documenting the dedication of doctors, judges, social workers, politicians, actors, and community leaders, some of whom are survivors themselves.
