    I’m happy that the larger political/economic systems & colonial context in which gender oppression occurs were brought up – I wish we had had way more time for that conversation. The film seemed to put too much emphasis on culture without talking about the larger political/economic context, which allows viewers to be let off the hook for addressing the larger underlying causes…I’ve got more to say, but I’d love to hear others’ thoughts…

    I agree. I thought the panelists were right on point. They raised the issues around how we participate and contribute to the dire economic conditions that create or support the conditions under which human trafficking and violence agaknst women can truly flourish. It is not just culture, but rather extreme poverty(and corporate greed) that leaves women with few choicesn and provides opportunity for abuse and exploitation.
