Human Trafficking In The 21st Century | Spicie.com | Women's Rights | Scoop.it

'Human trafficking is not a problem that is relegated to third world nations. It is a practice that is alive and well in industrialized nations as well, particularly in the US and Europe.

 

Estimates from the US State Department TIPR place the number of persons being trafficked worldwide as potentially being as high as 27 million.

 

Not all trafficking is in minors or women, however the underground sex trade industry is heavily reliant on having a ready supply of young women and girls that can be as young as eight years old. Often, these young women are secured in one country and illegally transported to another where they are enslaved.'

Robyn DeAbreu's curator insight, December 5, 2013 7:00 PM

Women can do anything men can do. There are many campaigns worldwide to raise awareness about gender inequality and they have millions of supporters. The empowerment of women is the solution to the end of gender inequality. The authors of Half The Sky promote the empowerment of women to help decrease human trafficking, honor killings, genital mutilation, as well as many other things.

Sirila Padi's curator insight, December 5, 2013 7:29 PM

This article appears on my page because gender inequality is such a big topic in the world today. Not only was it popular a while ago, but it still is and the only way to stop it is by awareness. Some people don't even know how their actions itself can easily display this. Honestly, anyone would benefit from reading and viewing this because it really shows how are society thinks. Through this, hopefully we can come together and change this so that when you type "Women cannot" in a google search these wont show up. This related specifically to our reading of Half the Sky because it shows again the big topic of gender inequality. It shows the difference or the stereotype that women cant do something because they are a women. This should not be how the world operates. Women can do every single thing that men can do. Its not that they can't do it, yet instead its all about first offering them an oppurtunity to do it so that we can prove those that think this wrong!

 

hannah's curator insight, April 27, 2014 9:21 PM

 found this article to produce intersting results . It gives apublic view of private thinking about women verse men's oles and rights. While we often of the inequality exmaples of such things as  baby girls in China being mistreated or killed or boys being fed more in Indian. We tend to think the more western world holds women to different standards, this google seach research project from the United Nations demonstrated that there remains unequalities among the thinking of various educated and urban minds of both men but even very much so in women proving feminist movement remain important in promoting change.in this pattern of social thinking.

Desiree Forqueran's curator insight, May 20, 2015 9:51 PM

Unsurprisingly, developing countries with strict rules for women's roles in society scored lowest in all of the indexes. Notably most countries in Africa and the Middle East. Many countries in Asia, Central and South America were low scoring as well.  The evidence has been pretty irrefutable for decades now: given the opportunity, women will lift up not only themselves but those around them as well.

This shows HEI and talks about the source of income that sex trade sadly provides to many who cannot afford anything else.

Bryce Rowell's curator insight, May 7, 2014 5:34 PM

 I choose this article because of natural disasters within these agriculturally dependent countries, people are forced out of there homes and lives. As a result of the environment women sometimes have to be apart of the notorious sex trades and the business of prostitution, where many forms of violence and wrongdoing occur. 

Daniel Nunez's curator insight, May 8, 2014 12:52 PM

In many countries the amount of women that suffer during natural disasters is huge. They suffer because since they rely on farming and the disaster destroys the crop they are forced into prostitution and slavery related jobs to keep the family surviving. If they don't then they are beaten for not producing good offspring to take care of the family. And they are sometimes killed because the husbands think that  they are useless and need to find new wives.

Sirila Padi's curator insight, December 5, 2013 8:37 PM

This article appears on my page becuase it shows how and what the world is coming too. It dissapoints me to see this because I dont agree with any of this and to see that these are the first four things that come up on google upsets me beyond words. This is so wrong because no women are just as good as men and I feel like at times women are trapped and are treated so cruelly. I'm not saying that men are always treated perfectly because no thats not the case because men and women are not always treated well. However, I feel like its so much heavier with the criticism with women. Being a girl myself and seeing this shows that the world has pretty much closed every oppurtunity there is because we are women. I dont like how I see that we need to stay at home, not speak in the church, or be in the kitchen, or etc. No. Women should have the right to make their own decisions and be the individual they want to be. The society should not be able to make this stereotype or decision for women. I think women and men can benefit from viewing and reading this because it shows that we have improvements that we can make and this can be where we start. It relates specifically to our reading of HTS because this is a major issue as we see how the women are not given any type of oppurtunieties to prove themself. We should start today and change this if we dont want to see this anymore.

Domestic Violence Cases Remain High - Survey - AllAfrica.com

Domestic Violence Cases Remain High - Survey - AllAfrica.com | Women's Rights | Scoop.it

Domestic violence cases remain high, "according to the 2010-11 Zimbabwe Demographic Health Survey released by the Zimbabwe National Statistics Agency recently".

 

"The most common perpetrator of this violence against women has been identified as current or former husband or partner."

 

"Zimbabwe enacted the Domestic Violence Act in 2006 for the protection and relief of victims of domestic violence".

 

There are lot more disheartening statistics in the article. 

 

Everyday, as I read through these articles, it is so sad to see and to feel as if this is a never ending cycle of abuse and violence. 

 

Many countries have enacted legislation to help curb gender-based violence against women, but as you can see from this article, there hasn't been much difference.
