Impacts on gender equity and human rights
Women and children are the worst victims of trafficking. They are largely trafficked for sexual exploitation. The sex industry is a billion dollar industry and each day it’s growing manifold.
The researchers said more than 80% of trafficking victims are female. Over 50% of human trafficking victims are children.
Each trafficked victim is stripped of their basic human rights. These unlucky souls are subject to all forms of human rights violations.Less considered are the rights to adequate healthcare, education, a decent work environment, and freedom from discrimination, to name a few (Todres 2006).
Human trafficking is an everyday reality – for many. The issue is intimidating; but the society as a whole has to come forward and do tangible work to make a difference. Inspire and Engage is the key. Getting involved with an organization is the most powerful and impactful action one can take towards making the world a safer place to live in.
