Ashley Judd

Actress and Goodwill Ambassador Ashley Judd came to the UN to discuss her life and her book "All That Is Bitter and Sweet: A Memoir". In it she opens up about emotional and sexual abuse she endured as a child and what led to her work as a humanitarian activist fighting human trafficking.

The event was hosted by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). Ms. Judd has long been involved in humanitarian work, but it was only a few years ago that she took up the cause of fighting human trafficking. Since then she has been raising awareness about the issue.

Simone Monasebian from the UN Office on Drugs and Crime asked Judd to read a passage from her book before launching into a discussion about her life.
