“Turning a human being into a thing, an object, is almost always the first step towards justifying violence against that person. It is very difficult, perhaps impossible, to be violent to someone we think of as an equal, someone we have empathy with, but it is very easy to abuse a thing.”
— Jean Kilbourne
“Exploitation and abuse thrives in secrecy and shame. The more connected we are in raising the level of the conversation, the greater our impact will be in decreasing the stigma around the issues across all demographics and socioeconomic sectors. Together we can shine the light and ignite the chain reaction required to end exploitation and create sustainable global change and better global health .”
