Women in the World Summit 2019 | New York City

10th annual Women in the World summit
CEO and Founder of LIFT, Nicole Bell, is speaking at the Women in the World Summit in New York City.
Nikki’s segment is titled “Humans for Sale” and is scheduled for Friday, April 12th at 11:10am ET. 

“Prostitution isn’t people deferring entrance to Yale… We’re looking at people in poverty, people of color, people coming out of the foster system. It’s not this conceived notion of choice.”

Nicole Bell at Women in the World
