Women’s Sex Trafficking

February 20, 2014

In 3rd world countries each year, more than 100,000 children/women are tricked, coerced, or forced into the commercial sex trade.  Basically  they are forced to become prostitutes. Often girls and women or sold by their families into this type of slavery. Although, sometimes you will find young women selling themselves. They need money, and they also feel worthless and not valuable because of the way they are treated. Sometimes, they go into this to feel like someone wants them because of how miss treated they are. Women can be sold at a very young age by their own family into sex trafficking, (ages 7+).  The young women do not know how important they are and how loved they are because no one tells them that or cares about them, so they feel unimportant all the time.  It is a regular day in life for them to feel this way and to be put into types of situations like this, they don’t know any different but they do know that they should not be treated like this.
