What is Human Trafficking?

Human Trafficking involves an act of recruiting, transporting, transferring, harboring or receiving a person through a use of force, coercion or other means, for the purpose of exploiting them.

Prostitution versus Slavery

The distinctions existing between sex slavery and prostitution are false. The idea that women are prostituted by choice ignores that it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a victim of slavery and a victim of prostitution.

The Cause of Sex Slavery

In societies where women and girls are undervalued, not valued, or objectified, they are at greater risk for being abused, trafficked, and coerced into sex slavery.

How are women trafficked?

Some are lured with offers of legitimate and legal work, marriage, educational opportunities, a modeling career or a better life, while others are kidnapped and sold.
