The purpose of our blog is to discuss topical issues, stories, and situations, as well as to share what we are up to and new ways for you to get involved. We are always searching for possible answers to the question: Why is a girl's worth culturally and historically relative?

New Exhibition: Girl for Sale

Girl Museum's latest exhibition, in partnership with American Poetry Museum, will launch on March 31, 2011, at   Girl for Sale examines the worldwide problem of human trafficking and the complexities and complicities of governments, histories and human nature in this free market post-morality world.

Girl for Sale is a collaborative exhibition about girl trafficking that interrogates and responds to the issues through poetry, art, video and education. It is about outrage, survival and prevention.  Every year, thousands of girls are tricked, intimidated or forced into the shadows of sweatshops and brothels for labor and sexual exploitation. Some are taken across oceans, others just across the street. This modern day slavery is the second most lucrative international illegal trade.

This co-production of Girl Museum and the American Poetry Museum launches on 31 March 2011.

Ask yourself hard questions, find the limits of your tolerance, and take action.
