Trafficking in Women & Girls: Roots in Gender-Based Violence
By Mona Ayoub & Racha Haffar
Mona Ayoub and Racha Haffar connected over their passion for justice in the fields of gender, trafficking and migration rights. They began working together as board members on the Youth Against Slavery Movement. One of the first potential continents the movement aims to impact is Africa. Therefore, Racha and Mona conducted research on human trafficking from an African perspective to assess the realities of trafficking on the ground and its connection to root causes and other related issues fueling the crime in Africa. They also founded the Anti Slavery Collective for Generation Equality, where they mobilized other CSOs globally to engage in the Generaton Equality process and ensure trafficking in women and girls is tackled within the Action Coalitions. This is an excerpt of their research that speaks about gender and trafficking and highlights the interconnections between these two issues that seem to be neglected.
