LeTourneau University will feature guest speaker Reggie Littlejohn, the founder and president of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, during a chapel service at 10:50 a.m. Friday, Jan. 16, in the S.E. Belcher Jr. Chapel and Performance Center on the LETU campus, 2100 S. Mobberly Ave. in Longview. The event is free and the public is invited.
Littlejohn founded the international coalition Women’s Rights Without Frontiers to expose and oppose forced abortion, forced sterilization, infanticide and sexual slavery in China and redefined China’s One Child Policy as systematic, state-sponsored violence against women. Women’s Rights Without Frontiers is embraced by both pro-life and pro-choice sides of the political spectrum.
She is an acclaimed international expert on China’s One Child Policy, testifying numerous times before the United States Congress and European Parliaments. She is a frequent guest on radio and television programs, including Voice of America, CNN, C-SPAN and the BBC. She is prominently featured in a 2012 documentary film titled “It’s a Girl,” about gendercide in China and India.
A Yale Law school graduate, Littlejohn is a former litigator who has represented Chinese refugees in political asylum cases. She was influential in obtaining the release of blind activist Chen Guangcheng.
