96% of all victims of Human Trafficking are Women and Girls. Traded as commodities; bought, sold, exploited and raped around the world for profit. They are isolated, intimidated, sold into debt bondage and subject to physical and sexual assault by their traffickers. Most live under constant mental and physical threat. Many suffer severe emotional trauma, including symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder and disassociation. These victims are hidden in plain sight.
