Human trafficking in India

Human Trafficking is an umbrella term that is, problematically, often reduced to mean prostitution, when it involves sex trafficking. Article 3, paragraph (a) of the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons defines Trafficking in Persons as the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation. Exploitation shall include, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labour or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs.

Apne Aap Women Worldwide is a registered charitable trust in India. A grassroots Indian organization, we work to empower girls and women to resist and end sex trafficking by organizing marginalized women and girls into small self-empowerment groups, where they work collectively to access their legal, social, economic, and political rights. Founded by twenty-two courageous women in prostitution, who had a vision for a world where no woman could be bought or sold, Apne Aap Women Worldwide is determined to make their vision a reality.

This video not only addresses the causes for trafficking, but also offers a solution.

This video focuses specifically on one of India's most problematic and rampant human rights violations, sex trafficking. Although the speaker gives examples of Indian women, these stories apply to society as a whole and make us realize that this isn't something that is happening far away in a foreign country, but is rather something that takes place more often then we are willing to acknowledge. Sunitha Krishnan forces us to open our minds, and our hearts, to these victims.
