Diane was trafficked to Paris from her home country, Burkina Faso, and forced to work in domestic servitude under terrible conditions for more than two years before she escaped. This is her story: http://sm.ohchr.org/14ygs1d
She is one of an estimated 53 million domestic workers world-wide, a third of whom have no labour protection of any kind.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
