Sexual enslavement of girls and women worldwide by Andrea Parrot( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 926 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. State Department estimates 800,000 victims, mostly women and children, are trafficked for sex trade across nations each year and millions more are trafficked within countries, including the U.S., Britain, Spain, and the Netherlands. In this book, the authors outline the scope and growth of the sex slave market today and explain the history with various elements (economic, political, cultural, and religious) that make this trade difficult to fully expose, quell, combat, and shut down. We hear from girls and women around the world describing how sexual enslavement has tortured them physically emotionally and spiritually, whether they suffered at the hands of prison guards in Turkey, criminals in Washington, or buyers dealing with parents who sell their daughters for the sex slave trade in Greece, Belgium, or France. The authors also describe national and international efforts and legislation passed or in design to stop sex slavery. Successful countries and regions are spotlighted. Most important, the authors point out actions still needed to stop the sex slavery trade. -- From book jacket

"Forsaken Females describes the varied types of violence women experience throughout the life course, from female infanticide and genital mutilation to sexual slavery and trafficking. From a truly global perspective, the book illuminates the diverse ideologies and cultural conditions that condone and perpetuate such brutality against women. In their own compelling words, women describe their personal experiences, victimization, and horrors. This book also addresses the physical, emotional, and economic impact of such violence, and each chapter concludes with examples of promising policies and practices developed to address and reduce violence against women."--Jacket
