Newsletter, Spring 2007: Trafficking

Opening text: “This issue’s theme is trafficking of women and children, a major contemporary challenge for violence prevention workers. The United Nations estimates between 1 and 4 million women and children, mostly girls, are victims of trafficking worldwide. It is often assumed the problem is one of foreign women and children being recruited and transported into Canada for prostitution markets. In fact, trafficking is a domestic Canadian issue, as much as it is a transnational issue.”
