Women Bought and Sold: Voices United Against the Violence amplified the voices of women of all faiths and backgrounds living in Muslim-majority societies around the globe. The subject matter of the films focused on the issues of sex trafficking, slavery, domestic servitude, forced marriage, and sexual harassment. Films showed both the plight and the relentless struggle of exploited women, displayed the role of men and women in eradicating such injustices, and the development of a network committed to achieving justice and equality.
