FRONTLINE: Sex Slaves Series

Lectures curated around FRONTLINE: Sex Slaves, which examines the estimated half-million women trafficked annually for sexual slavery. Women are kidnapped, or lured by traffickers who prey on their dreams of employment abroad, then they are “exported” to Europe, the Middle East, the United States, and elsewhere, where they are sold to pimps, drugged, terrorized, locked in brothels, and raped repeatedly. In Eastern Europe, since the fall of communism, sex trafficking has become the fastest growing form of organized crime, with Moldova and Ukraine widely seen as the centers of the global trade in women and girls.
