Product Description

Sex trafficking is a global crisis of growing dimensions. Millions of women and young girls have been illegally transported from rural to urban areas and across national borders for the purpose of prostitution. This compelling video explores the social and economic forces that drive this lucrative underground trade, and the devastating impact it has on women´s lives.

A 14-year-old Thai woman recalls the day she discovered it was not tea cakes she was expected to sell at her new job, but her body. A hopeful note is sounded by the actions of women´s organizations working against sex trafficking in their native countries, including Nepal, Thailand, and the Philippines.

“Sisters and Daughters Betrayed” will generate thought and discussion in a variety of courses in women’s studies, Asian studies, human rights, development issues, cultural anthropology, and Third-World studies. It was produced by Chela Blitt.
