There is often confusion about the definition of sex trafficking versus sex work. And in truth, there is a lot of overlap. Many pimps exert control over and take money from the sex workers they engage with. Globally, an estimated 71% of enslaved people are women and girls, while men and boys account for 29%. Estimates suggest that about 50,000 people are trafficked into the US each year.
Traffickers promise a high-paying job, a loving relationship, or new and exciting opportunities. Their common thread is a willingness to exploit other human beings for profit.
This session will provide understanding how trafficking affects mental and physical health of women and young girls.
