It is easy to be lulled by the relative safety of Japan. Living here, you may not have given much thought to the protection of women and children in our communities.

This month's speaker, Joyita Ambett, will speak on the abuse, exploitation, and violence against children and women in our communities, both in private and public spaces. Joyita is committed to promote education around these issues and strengthen safety and protection mechanisms for women and children around the world.

While highlighting the many forms of exploitation and abuse, both globally and locally, Joyita will stress the collective responsibility and personal engagement needed to create a safer world. She will address the question that we all hold: what can be done? And we hope you will leave the meeting wondering: how can I help?
