I believe part of the reason that women are the ones who are sold in the sex trade is because in our culture here in the U.S. we see that women are viewed as less than, or weaker than men. Not anywhere near how women are treated in other cultures as almost worthless in all facets other than child-bearing and raising.
Formal charges filed in alleged human trafficking ring in Salt Lake City. Agents also found 14 women and girls, some as young as 14 years old, who were allegedly lured in and forced to work as prostitutes. I am glad that there have been multiple felonies filed against the traffickers. We need more prosecution of these crimes.
