Human trafficking is the only area of transnational crime in which women are significantly represented – as victims, perpetrators, and as activists seeking to combat this crime.

– Louise Shelley, Human Trafficking: A Global Perspective

In the introduction to Louise Shelley’s extensively researched book, Human Trafficking: A Global Perspective, she highlights the distinct nature of human trafficking compared to other international criminal systems. Women are enslaving human trafficking victims around the world, and women themselves are being enslaved. But women are also among the vanguard battling this growing problem.
