The Trust Women conference is a gathering with one main goal: action.

Women’s rights campaigners and leaders in the fields of law, finance, business, technology and government are coming together in London on December 3 and 4 to forge strategic commitments to empower women to know and defend their rights.

The key themes of the conference are:

- Modern-day slavery in the supply chain

- First-hand accounts from human trafficking survivors

- Prosecuting violence against women: a comparison of the US, UK, India and South Africa

- What went wrong: unintended consequences of healthcare policies

- The impact of the Arab Spring on women's rights
