Free a Girl Movement

Issue 43 | June 2017

Background

India had the most underage girls in prostitution in the world with an estimated 1.2 million children working in brothels. These girls, some as young as seven years old, were abducted from their homes, sold to human traffickers and often tortured to cooperate. Despite the magnitude of the problem, the amount of prosecutions against those involved was incredibly low. In 2015 there were only 55 cases that led to convictions. One of the problems was a lack of good lawyers and judges with in-depth knowledge of human trafficking and child prostitution, which had a negative effect on the rate of convictions.
