Licensed to Traffic: The Sex Trade in Bangladesh
AbstractAn overview of the conditions underlying the flourlshing Bangladeshi trafficking trade. Cross-border sales of women and girls are common, and prostitution is said to function on a scale comparable to other domestic industry. However, gaining an accurate understanding of the magnitude of traficking is made very difficult by a lack of proper documentation. Despite legal provisions prohibiting the flesh trade, the abuse of well-intentioned laws results in a successful evasion of penalization by the many who benefit from the trafficking of women and girls.
