A women’s cause: Finding hope and courage after Typhoon Haiyan

Post Summary: 

Extreme poverty and exploitation affect women deeply.

A year after Typhoon Haiyan, a group of women in the Philippines finds solidarity in standing together against human trafficking in their community.

Author Shayne Moore writes from the Philippines.

When the true history of the antislavery cause shall be written, women will occupy a large space in its pages, for the cause of the slave has been peculiarly [a] woman’s cause.” –Frederick Douglass

Frederick Douglass wrote these words almost two hundred years ago. After escaping from slavery, he became a cementing force in the abolitionist movement against the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
