Human Trafficking And Slavery

Superior Essays
To many the word slavery in today’s society means something that has happened in the past. But yet, the reality is that slavery still goes around in the world and it might even be bigger than what is used to. Human trafficking is one of the biggest human violations there is because basically the freedom of the victim is being taken away and used against them. Human trafficking is parallel to what the American slavery looked like back in the 18th and 19th century. Human trafficking basically exploits vulnerable women and the youth for a profit and they do not care about the individual. There are many great stories about human trafficking and how it affects children every single day. The one story that stood up to me about human trafficking …show more content…
The best way to get rid of human trafficking in my mind is to spread the issue far and wide in the news and get support from every nation to get involved in cases to help shut down this issue. Another way to help this issue is to put pressure to the governments so they can crack down on their law enforcement and legislatures to make a better and stricter policy rules towards human trafficking, and they also have to establish some programs that will fund the mental and physical health services to the victims, also to establish education, job training, and protection from the criminals who trafficked them. All the nations should work together to prevent and eliminate trafficking, and we should create actions to reach out and improve the lives of the …show more content…
People have no voice to try to get out. It does not matter how hard these people try to say anything or something they can’t, the situation just get worse for them. Me having two sisters it really does hurt me to hear that that many women are the target of human trafficking. The problem of human trafficking is still a big problem because it is going on all over the world but more in poorer countries than us. All the offenders of trafficking know who to target and they usually target those that do not have any resources to do something about this particular issue. It continues to mark women because they have realized that many women are seen as being weak and not being able to do much to protect themselves. I would not want anybody close to me to be going through something that is this terrible. Human trafficking basically downgrades all these women that are victims. Human trafficking is still a huge issue that not many people are aware of. Which is this there would not be nothing done to protect these poor children and women. People really do need to get themselves informed about the big issue that many people around the world get affected by every single

    The dreadful effects of human trafficking do not stop with the victim, it further causes societal breakdown by leaving countless of families with no daughter, mother, and sister. Also, many victims come looking for medical or social service that they cannot afford, which burdens the public health and social service systems. Human trafficking points out the weakness of those in power for not being able to stop the crime, it challenges government authority. Although national institutions regular anti-trafficking laws, local government and law enforcement forces are partly involved in the human trafficking, therefore, trafficking encourages widespread corruption for those in power (Facts on Human Trafficking and Sex Slavery).

    Nobody should be frightened by their spouse or parent constantly. This constant fear is so psychologically damaging, but unfortunately, so many women are subject to this like Mariam. When Laila started to deny Rasheed sex because he was ignoring Aziza, Rasheed blames Mariam and beats her even though she had nothing to do with it: “‘I should have known you’d corrupt her’ Rasheed spat at Mariam. He swung the belt, testing it against his own thigh… Rasheed raised the belt again and this time came at Mariam” (240-41). Everything is Mariam’s fault because she is a woman.…

    They seem to be falling short of protecting at-risk women, not serving justice to traffickers and exploiters, and proper reintegration measures to women who have been bound to a life within trafficking. It all starts within the law enforcement itself. Many of the reviews and articles I have read claims thats many police/patrol, prosecutors, and judges don 't obtain the proper knowledge of the issues felt within trafficking. When faced with a situation, they either attack the victim in asking why she “chose” this path or don 't successfully supply the proper help to them. It is important to teach the management skills and strengthen mechanisms for helping any victim.…

    Mary Wollstonecraft once wrote, “I do not wish them [women] to have power over men; but over themselves.” This quote is of importance because many women today still feel like they do not have a say in what happens to them or to their bodies. Rape is an example of the lack of control that women have over themselves and demonstrates how their voices are not being heard. These unequal rights are exhibited in The Round House by Louise Erdrich, when Geraldine is raped her voice is not heard and the man who raped her is able to get away. Women’s voices are also being ignored in today’s society which is shown in recent court rulings when the perpetrator has been able to get away with none to little punishment at all for such a tremendous crime. Although women supposedly have equal rights, they are treated unfairly in society, this is shown in The Roundhouse and in everyday society when women are raped and have little control over their bodies, many times the attackers are able to get away with small consequences while the women suffer tremendously.…

    They are seen as low-life criminals. After reading this book, I feel like my eyes have been opened. I did not realize how serious the problems of sexual exploitation of children and victim-blaming have become. The multiple flaws in the criminal justice system work against the girls in need instead of for them like it should. Furthermore, our frequently intolerant culture has no sympathy for them because of their ethnicity, social class, gender, and a variety of other factors.…

    Sex trafficking violates the human rights of these men, women, boys, and girls. Feminists argue that human trafficking against women in the form of sex trafficking is very harmful to their bodies, and their general wellbeing. They find an issue with victims’ protection when it comes to sex trafficking. On the other side of this debate, according to Duong (2014), “The others, who support prostitution as a legitimate work, want to compromise with the legalization of prostitution as a way to reduce sex trafficking.” (p. ) People in charge of sex trafficking institutions are very experienced with the industry and they know just how to hide it. Also, many victims of human trafficking do not seek help because they don’t want to be seen as less pure or weak.…
