History

Sexual slavery and human trafficking has been around for centuries. Ancient cultures like the Romans, Egyptians, and the Persians had practiced sex trafficking during 3000 BC to 300 AD through prostitution and sexual exportation (De La Rosa). These practices continued for many years, it was what the economy depended on. In 1910 the United States had passes the Mann Act, which would not allow people to migrate prostitution and sex slavery across national or international border lines (De La Rosa). Recently there has been a focus on reform, in Ohio they are, “spending $4 million to hire specially trained case managers, establishing residential treatment programs, and training law enforcement and social service personnel.” (Johnson). In attempts to inform, citizens are becoming more aware about what’s going on around them and are becoming more inspired to fight this problem. With the help of programs like, The Price of Life who fight to increase awareness on Sexual slavery and Human Trafficking (Moore). We look back we can see that the age for people being put into slavery has been getting younger and more open to whoever they can get. With more awareness we can only hope that with time and the help of the government and programs like The Price of Life, we can put all this aside and finally find some good and stop the Sexual slavery and human trafficking industry.
