Selling Women


From Rhetoric to Reality

The Latvian Gender Crisis Centre phone rings. The woman on the end of the line needs to tell her story. She is another young woman who, looking for work overseas, answered an ad or accepted a job from a friend but found herself trapped in a foreign country, and forced into prostitution. Latvian women have been trafficked across Europe, through Germany, Italy, Turkey, Scandinavia as well as Israel and America. One young woman rings to talk about her escape, of secretly crossing borders and the month long trek she made home. Many others never return.
