Erica Ayisi on the Global Hair Industry

Pulitzer Center grantee and independent journalist Erica Ayisi joined Femi Oke of Al Jazeera English's The Stream to discuss the implications of the global hair trade. Recently, activists are arguing that the industry exploits poor women, who "are essentially selling a body part to meet their basic needs." Ayisi has previously reported from Cambodia on this issue for her Pulitzer Center-supported project, "If This Hair Could Talk."
