Summary
"Sex trafficking is one of the most lucrative criminal enterprises worldwide.
Sex trafficking is one of the most lucrative criminal enterprises worldwide. Sexual assault, sex trafficking, and child abuse affect millions of women and girls globally each year. This two-volume set covers a broad scope of topics, from violence against girls before birth, in childhood, and throughout women's adult lives. The collection of articles discusses the global problem of violence against women, addressing less commonly discussed subjects such as domestic violence in lesbian couples, abuse within the context of war crimes, and the incidence of violence and abuse against women internationally as compared to within the United States.
