This article from the Guardian UK says that trafficking victims aren’t just prostitutes. Trafficking victims are working for nothing in mines, farms and homes as well.
All too often the idea in the public mind is that human trafficking is all about rescuing women from the clutches of pimps and ruthless men. Prostitution is an issue but it’s important to remember that trafficking is all around us all the time and it ‘s not just the sexually exploited and it’s not just happening to women.
If you would like to learn more about other forms of trafficking Seattle Against Slavery will be hosting a talk Oct 30th about victims forced to work in peoples homes as domestic slaves. It’s free to attend.
