1. NEW HIGHLIGHT: "Women as Commodities - Economic Empowerment Can
Prevent Sexual Slavery"

Although two millennia have passed since women, as part of the spoils
of war, were sold into slavery like cattle in public auctions - the
situation has not changed greatly in many parts of the world. Girls
and women, willfully and with full cognizance of the consequences -
continue to be sold into different forms of slavery, often by their own
fathers, brothers, and husbands.

Young girls in Thailand serve the tourism and sex industry even before
they have reached puberty. Poor farmers in Nepal sell their daughters
to procurers who supply girls to the brothels of Bombay and Calcutta.
Men in the guise of promising a "better life" to young women dupe parents
in rural and impoverished India into allowing them to be escorted into
the cities - straight into domestic labor or prostitution.
International trafficking of girls and young women from the former Soviet
Union for the purpose of sexual exploitation is a thriving international
business.

The value of the global trade in women as commodities for sex
industries is more than 10-12 billion dollars annually. Poor women from
developing countries are extremely vulnerable to trafficking, smuggling and
sexual exploitation because they are weak and have no economic status in
society - nor the education and empowerment to stand up for their
rights. With no money, no family support and nowhere to go - they are hapless
and helpless victims. To make matters worse, the dream of earning
money - even by selling their bodies - lures women into the trap very
easily.

Laws and policing mechanisms across countries have too many loopholes
to make effective rescue and rehabilitation possible. The perpetrators
are seldom caught or punished and organized crime thrives on sex slavery
and "girl trade". How can such a gross violation of human rights be
contained? One of Interpol's main tools for helping police fight this type
of crime is the Interpol Child Abuse Image Database (ICAID). Created in
2001, it contains hundreds of thousands of images of child sexual abuse
submitted by member countries, thereby facilitating the sharing of
images and information to assist law enforcement agencies with the
identification of new victims. Organizations like the Angel Coalition in Russia
run Trafficking Victim Assistance Centers, Toll-free Help Lines and
Rescue Repatriation Global Databases.
More than anything else, however, governments must involve women in
political leadership and empower them to be economically independent so
that they do not have to be sold or sell themselves. At the same time,
families must be motivated into educating their girls and letting them
take charge of their lives. When women have a say in managing their
lives, they will be free of the chains of slavery.
