Human ‘sex’ trafficking is the fastest growing crime world-wide. Sex Trafficking is defined as a form of slavery where individuals profit from the control and exploitation of others through forced sex practices.
Victims can be found working in a variety of different roles throughout the world — including in restaurants, nail salons and hotels, according to advocacy group Polaris Project,
The U.S. Department of State identified 44,758 victims around the world in 2013, the International Labor Organization estimated in 2012 that the total number is much higher, at 20.9 million.
“It’s the third-largest and fastest-growing crime worldwide (because it combines) high profit and low risk,” Bradley Myles, deputy director of the Polaris Project, said on a 2008 panel.
