Behind closed doors – voices against gender-based violence, human trafficking and modern-day slavery.
Launched at an event on Wed 28th June 2017 in the House of Lords hosted by Baroness Butler-Sloss and presented by the Revd Dr Carrie Pemberton Ford, of CCARHT in Cambridge.
This report was initiated in the autumn of 2015 to address the situation of women in relation to human trafficking and modern slavery. The project aimed to produce a final report on the challenges and opportunities facing the churches and the particular contribution which the Pentecostal Churches can play in relation to women at risk within their networks and the communities they serve.
The research project was funded through a legacy gift of the Leicester Free Church Women’s Council, and thus the focus of the report was specifically on challenges in these areas of exploitation experienced by women and children within the Pentecostal traditions.
