Human Trafficking Through a Feminist Theoretical Perspective Feminist Theory It 's unfortunate that when some people hear the term feminism, they automatically place that as a negative word and it becomes something they don 't want to be associated with. It is unfortunate that people will try to avoid it however, people will still embrace the feminist politics. As feminist scholar Susan A. Mann (2012) describes, when people refuse to identify as a feminist they create the "I 'm-not-a feminist-but" syndrome. This refers to when people understand the importance of struggles with gender issues, such that include the wage gap or domestic violence, but they will still reject the notion that it may actually mean they are a feminist if they are fighting for that cause. Feminism has a simple definition, it means that women seek gender equality through political, social, and economic gain.
2.1.2 The concept of Human Trafficking and forms of Human Trafficking Human trafficking is a complex phenomenon hence difficult to conceptualize (Maclnnis, 2012). Scholars, nations and international organizations have individually or collectively tried to define human trafficking and, not surprisingly, they disagree with one another. United States (US) for instance does not consider organ trade as human trafficking whereas the United Nations (UN) and Canada do (United States Department of State 2010; United Nations 2012). According to Malawi Human Trafficking Act (2015), trafficking in persons means:
Human trafficking is viewed as modern day slave exchange. It is a genuine crime under both global and national legal systems. It opens casualties to economic exploitation with a significant number of them being women and children less than 18 years old years. It is essential to know the way
Last semester in my Women Public Health class was revelation for me as a woman, learning about the struggles that other women suffer around the world. The one subject that caught my attention was the missing girls in China and India. Millions of fetus or baby girls in these countries go missing yearly by different methods. The subject of the missing girl's lead me to human trafficking (sex trafficking) into and within China's own boarders, due to the shortage of women. Although there aren't any available history journals for human trafficking and the subject of human trafficking interests me. Human trafficking has different components such as force labor, sex trafficking, and child trafficking, I will be looking at the labor history.
Human Trafficking stories such as Rebecca Bender’s is what makes another form of slavery so devastating. As slavery was started in America, it brought people’s hopes and dreams to an end. In ways to “STOP” all types of slavery, we as Americans must come together to abolish slavery and bring the dreams of people back to America.
Sex trafficking is a form of modern slavery that exists throughout the United States and globally. Sex traffickers use violence, threats, lies, debt bondage, and other forms of coercion to compel adults and children to engage in commercial sex acts against their will. Under U.S. federal law, any minor under
According to the UNODC (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime) reported on human trafficking in the year of 2014, the highest percentage for victim gender is women with 49% and 18% for men. Girls are 21% and boys are 12%. The significant part of human trafficking are women and girl who are below eighteen. They are kidnapped into slavery and sex exploitation. Escape is very hard for them, unless they are rescued. They are mostly seen as prisoners. If the “husband” are sick of the person who is trafficked, they can be sold to others. In the sex industry, the life span becomes shorter for women because one would get transmitted diseases such HIV and AIDS. For the children, they might be kidnapped or sold to the traders by their parents because
Sex trafficking is a form of modern day slavery and is an issue that is now plaguing the world. Those who are attempting to eliminate this horrific crime are realizing the important role of the Social Workers and are now beginning to understand the role they have in ensuring policies are created that focus not only on the criminals, but also on the supports systems needed to support the victims. There are many factors that contribute to this crime and I will examine a few and discuss ways organizations are attempting to overcome this crime.
Women’s Rights/Trafficking in the Middle East “Women hold up half the sky.” -Chinese Proverb. To me this quote speaks about how women are just as equal, if not more so, as men in every way. You may not notice how important they are or respect them enough unless you had to live without them in the world. A woman, in my opinion, is precious and special and SO much more than just an item to use for sex. Human trafficking is a very real and frightening problem in our world. It is under reported and looked past due to sexism and misogyny which are deeply entrenched everywhere. This must stop. We must shed light on the terrible problem affecting millions of women and girls and even some boys right this moment. Although human trafficking is nothing new, it is still a big problem. Even though it is very unpleasant to talk about, it is completely necessary to make a positive change. It happens all over the world of course, like
Human Trafficking is a horrendous crime that takes advantage of people through the illegal trading of human beings for purposes of forced labor, and commercial sexual/child exploitation. Traffickers tend to prey on the vulnerable, those who want a better life, have little or no employment opportunities, very unstable, and have a history of sexual abuse. With this being popular in society, anyone can easily become a victim. By being an undocumented immigrant, runaway and homeless youth, and a victim of trauma and abuse, you have already put a target on your back. The most popular victims are the undocumented immigrants due to the lack of legal status, language barriers, limited employment options, and social isolation. ("The Victims.")
Around the world human trafficking happens around us without us noticing or realising what is happening. Modern-day slavery exists around the world and it is known today as human trafficking or trafficking in persons.

Haley Gooding Mrs. Gallos English 3 Honors 6 April 2017 Human Trafficking One of the most serious crimes worldwide, human trafficking is the buying, selling, and transportation of people for the use of sexual exploitation, forced labor, or organ removal. “Human trafficking is modern-day slavery and involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act.” (What is human trafficking Homeland) It happens in the United States and foreign countries.

Slavery is a modern, pervasive problem. Human trafficking has been found in every state in America (humantrafficking.org). It seems that most Americans likely live within a comfortable drive of someone who is being exploited through human trafficking. There is a growing trend in human trafficking toward sexual exploitation (Bennetts, 2011). The Information Age has helped to create new opportunities for sex trafficking to flourish.
2. Child Trafficking More specifically then human trafficking, there is child trafficking. Child trafficking is today’s version of slavery that involves transferring a child for the purpose of abuse or illegal activities. According to the U.S. Department of State, “Child/Human Trafficking is one of the fastest growing crimes in the world and is the world’s second largest criminal enterprise, after drugs. Child trafficking happens in every single country, including the United States. When people think of trafficking of people, most think of women, but children are also being sold as slaves all across the world. Children who are most likely to become victims are those who come from low income homes, have limited access to education and are
