Last Feminist Forum in 2018: Dr Kaye Quek's Book Launch

The final Feminist Forum for 2018 was held in early December, during the United Nations 16 Days of Activism to End Violence Against Women, and featured Dr Kaye Quek (GUSS, RMIT). Kaye launched her new book: “Marriage Trafficking: Women in Forced Wedlock” (Routledge) and spoke about the interconnected oppressions that women who are trafficked for marriage face, including the lack of recognition regarding marriage trafficking in international human rights instruments and domestic law. Kaye’s work has been pathbreaking in connecting issues of trafficking for sexual exploitation with trafficking for domestic labour and trafficking for reproductive exploitation. 

You can find out more about the book here: and it can be borrowed (as an e-book) from the RMIT library.
