Enslaved women and girls live in your city. Let’s find a solution together!
Our cities are home to a number of women that do not live there voluntarily: they have ended up there through deception or force by someone or through unwanted circumstances. Most of them are treated as an object of sexual exploitation.
Every 30 seconds, somewhere in the world, another child, another woman or another man becomes a victim of human trafficking. Trafficking in women is deemed to be the 21st-century slavery.
