The Effects of Human Trafficking on Women

Updated on October 17, 2011

Human Trafficking, the modern day slavery is a scourge affecting every community across the world. Various reports show that over two million people are trafficked across the world. Majority of victims are women and children. However, it has been found that half of victims are children.

Human traffikcing affects women in various ways. Once a woman is caught in this act, she lives her life in eminent fear. the most tragic part is that victims do not know that there is help available.

Women are either forced into prostitution or made to work for no pay. The situation becomes worse for a woman if she gets pregnant and have children.

Some of the effects of human trafficking in women are:

  1. Fear
  2. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  3. Risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV
  4. Hunger
  5. Work with little or no pay
  6. Threat of diportation if the traffikcing destination is different from their country of origin
  7. Their child or children may end up with the traffikced and be trafficked
  8. Physical abuse, beating and rape
  9. Isolation

      Thank you for pursuing this important issue. I feel numb reading it due to the helplessness of the victim and what I can do about it but we need to keep the conversation going. You're doing that well. Thanks.

      Sex trafficking is FAR WORSE than is commonly known in the west. One of the three constraints against Turkey joining the EU is their huge, unpoliced network of sex slave brothels. Every person in Ukraine knows at least one family who lost a woman to the sex trade. Traffickers enter their countries and snatch them off the street, nab them while on vacation (so true that some resorts surround their property with chain link fences to protect tourists.)

      The other human trafficking is slavery. This is mostly African-on-African and Asian-on-Asian.

      The third, far less well known version of human trafficking is humans sold for satanic sacrificing. It is hidden in the U.S. that HALF of all children who disappear here are abducted in the weeks preceding the two biggest satanic holidays: June 21st summer solstice and October 31, Halloween.
