The American Film Festival hosted by the US Consulate Lagos in partnership with WARIF held a private screening of the documentary “I am Jane Doe” directed by Mary Mazzio.
The film highlights the war on sex trafficking in the US by mothers of teenaged daughters sold on the internet website backpage.com and the legal battle that ensued to change existing internet laws that protect third parties like such websites from prosecution.
Convening an amazing panel of women which included Ms. Mazzio via Skype was our founder Dr Kemi DaSilva Ibru who had an interactive discussion about the prevalence of sex trafficking in Nigeria across to Libya , Europe and in the US.
