“A feminist comic book that’s a must-read for the modern consumer.” — Innocent Words

You are cordially invited to the long awaited, much anticpated book launch of THREADBARE: Clothes, Sex and Trafficking written by Anne Elizabeth Moore and illustrated by Delia Jean, Melissa Mendes, Simon Haussle, Julia Gfrorer, Leela Corman, and Ellen Lindner.

Threadbare draws the connections between the international sex and garment trades and human trafficking in a beautifully illustrated comics series. Moore, in reports illustrated by top-notch comics creators, pulls at the threads of gender, labor, and cultural production to paint a concerning picture of a human rights in a globalized world.

Please join us as we discuss and celebrate our efforts to unravel these complex issues and set them forth to empower and educate those affected. "Who do these issues affect?" you may ask. As it turns out, pretty much anyone that wears clothes, or cares about the general welfare of women at home and around the globe.

"The rendering of the interviews makes it seem as though you are sitting in the room with Moore and her interview subjects, sharing in their stories.” — Broken Pencil
