"I need to find myself a nice submissive young lady who wants and needs to have me control and direct her life. I am age 52, divorced after a long marriage. There is nothing so pleasurable to me as teaching a young woman to submit fully to my wishes... If my wife does not obey me, then I am perfectly willing to punish her in whatever way I think is right...”
Every day, womn and children exported from the Philippines into the mail-order bride and sex trafficking industry are sent to men much like the one described above.
Every day, their plights go unnoticed, ignored by the government.
In honor of these womn and all womn fighting for their rights, we celebrate
INTERNATIONAL WOMN'S DAY on March 8.
Please join us for a fundraiser and film screening of the mail-order bride documentary, "Say I Do" on
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 8
Discussion follows, especially contextualizing this with the Philippines' current political situation.
Donations of $3-5 welcomed and go back to GABNet's work with sex trafficking.
