Number Of Sex Trafficking Victims In The Us Mountain Compartir T :::

When the wider society views Indigenous Peoples as second-class citizens, the likelihood of violence with impunity happening against them increases. The countless murdered and missing Indigenous women in Canada or the innumerable unreported and unrecorded rape cases against Indigenous women by settlers, military, police, workers from outside, or tourists all around the world are brutal examples of this. Indeed, Indigenous women and girls are significantly more likely to be victims of different forms of sexual violence and more likely to experience rape than non- indigenous women and girls. This includes a higher exposure to various forms of sexual violence, trafficking and domestic violence.

Crime in Honduras is rampant and criminals operate with a high degree of impunity. Honduras has one of the highest national murder rates in the world; cities such as San Pedro Sula and the Tegucigalpa likewise have registered homicide rates among the highest in the world. The violence is associated with drug trafficking as Honduras is often a transit point, and with a number of urban gangs, mainly the MS-13 and the 18th Street gang. Homicide violence reached a peak in 2012 with an average of 20 homicides a day.[128] Official statistics from the Honduran Observatory on National Violence show Honduras's homicide rate was 60 per 100,000 in 2015 with the majority of homicide cases unprosecuted.[129] But as recently as 2017, organizations such as InSight Crime's show figures of 42 per 100,000 inhabitants,[130] a 26% drop from 2016 figures.

This drama about an African student whose education is disrupted when she is trafficked into sexual slavery hits on several themes that are far too real. A report from the International Labor Organization found that women and girls make up 98% of the victims of sex trafficking. Furthermore, around 2 million children are involved in the commercial sex trade, according to UNICEF. 1e1e36bf2d
