The Traffic in Women
Human Realities of the International Sex TradeBook - 1997
This moving but unemotional account of the rapidly-expanding international traffic in women reveals it as a global issue. Using original, carefully-documented field studies from Thailand, it explores the nature and extent of the problem worldwide. It demonstrates how the traffic in women and forced prostitution are aspects of transnational migration, now estimated to involve 70 million people worldwide. As forms of slavery, they are also grave violations of human rights. Avoiding rhetorical condemndation and simplistic solutions, the book shows how women themselves can be empowered to end the traffic and ends with detailed recommendations for change.
