Sexual Trafficking: Breaking the Crisis of Silence

In April 2006, the Carolina Women’s Center hosted, in collaboration with many campus and community cosponsors, a highly successful international conference on sex trafficking. The conference was organized in recognition of the fact that the trafficking of women and children is a profound global human rights violation and that human trafficking is the second largest criminal industry in the world.
