Child Sex Workers (1996): A harrowing report on Nepalese children forced into prostitution.
Synopsis: In India, girls cuddle up together on the steps of the notorious red light district in Bombay, India, one of Asia’s largest sex markets. These girls are from Nepal, kidnapped from their villages and forced into prostitution. Back home poverty stricken families are stunned by the loss of their daughters, yet rescued girls who return to Nepal often find that their families won’t take them back because they are seen as prostitutes, and are usually HIV positive. The Centre Director and the Minister for Women emphasize the need for education and awareness. But while the government procrastinates, more and more girls are forced into child prostitution, and are robbed of their dignity.

Marlyn Capio was forced into prostitution as a child. Now she works for a child protection agency, trying to rescue young girls who work in the red light district. About 100,000 minors a year are forced into the sex trade in the Philippines.

Brazil’s many slums are plagued by child sex trafficking, with hundreds of thousands of girls and boys being bought, sold or kidnapped each year.
Forced in to sex or, unbelievably, encouraged by their parents, these children are victims of severe abuse. “I left home at age 10. My father abused me” explains Juliana who has sold herself since she was 12 years old. Unemployment and poverty are both extremely high in Brazil, when Rosangela was offered a cleaning job by a much older Swiss man, she found it hard to refuse, little did she know she was about to enter the world of trafficking at the age of 17. “He managed to take all my documents, my ID, passport etc, and took me with him.” She became his slave and prisoner. Sex trafficking is an appalling truth to many young people – so why is this allowed to carry on? Could it be because the system itself is crooked?

Gang rape hit the headlines last year after the brutal attack of a woman on a bus in India’s capital, Delhi.
But new research suggests that gang rape is a wider problem across Asia – with some of the highest recorded levels of violence against women in the world to be found within the Asia-Pacific region.
Despite years of attention and millions spent on preventing it, there has been little or no measured decrease in its occurrence. And simply responding to the outcomes of violence has not been enough to end it.
For the first time, researchers have compiled cross-country data from men – those who admit to using violence against women, and those who do not. It is hoped that understanding men’s own experiences will help to target the causes of violence against women and prevent it from happening at all.
Four UN agencies interviewed 10,000 men across seven countries in the Asia-Pacific, with startling results.
One in four said they had raped a woman or girl, while one in 25 admitted to taking part in gang rape.
Men say they start raping early, often in their teenage years and are frequently motivated by sexual entitlement. While the rates of violence are shocking, the variations between countries is giving hope to those working on programmes to prevent violence and rape, because it demonstrates that early intervention can make a difference.
The research confirmed that there is no single cause of violence, but a complex interplay of factors related to individual experiences, community norms, and societal elements.
101 East travels to Cambodia, a country representing some of the highest levels of rape in the region, to speak with men themselves about why they commit these crimes and to find out if the perpetrators can trigger new ideas for prevention.

We rewind to 2013 when 101 East travelled to Cambodia to talk with men who admit rape and violence against women. Have attitudes changed since then?
Gang rape hit the headlines in a big way after the brutal attack of a woman on a bus in India’s capital, Delhi in 2012. But research showed that gang rape was a problem not just in India but across Asia.
The normalisation of violence against women… is still a common pattern around the world.
Dr Emma Fulu, The Equality Institute
In 2013, 101 East travelled to Cambodia, a country with some of the highest rates of rape in the region, to speak with men themselves about why they commit these crimes against women.
REWIND caught up with Dr Emma Fulu, the founder and director of The Equality Institute, which works to advance gender equality and prevent violence against women, to find out if there has been any progress in changing attitudes since 2013.
“The normalisation of violence against women, unfortunately, I think is still a common pattern around the world,” Fulu says.
But according to her, “the issue of violence against women is on the international agenda in a way that it wasn’t in 2013. In 2015, the sustainable development goals were launched and they now include a specific target on the elimination of violence against women and girls. So countries are required now to report on how they’re progressing in achieving that outcome.
“On the other hand is a pretty strong backlash to the women’s rights movement and to this issue of violence against women. I think you see that in social media, in mainstream media, you see it in the political sphere – I think you see that in the most recent US presidential election, where there was a huge amount of sexism and misogyny that was observed, and I think that level of backlash to the movement is becoming more pronounced. The positive thing about that backlash is what it actually shows, that we are moving forward.”

18 Sex for Grades: undercover inside Nigerian and Ghanaian universities – BBC Africa Eye documentary
7 okt. 2019
BBC News Africa
Universities in Nigeria and Ghana have been plagued by stories of sexual harassment by lecturers and professors for decades. Allegations include a wide array of abuses, from blackmailing students for sex in exchange for marks and admission to lewd comments and grooming.
After gathering dozens of testimonies, BBC Africa Eye sent undercover journalists posing as students inside the University of Lagos (UNILAG) and the University of Ghana to capture footage of the sexual harassment.
Reporter Kiki Mordi, who knows first-hand how devastating sexual harassment can be, reveals what happens behind the closed doors of some of West Africa’s most prestigious universities.

Paradise for Paedophiles (1998):
The Senegalese island of Goree is, by all accounts, paradise. The UNESCO World Heritage Site with a dark history of slaving has recently been blighted by a new problem: it has become a haven for paedophilia.
16-year old Aly has been propositioned for sex since he was a young boy. He’s been tempted by the offers – in return for sex he could perhaps get passage to the West, live his dream of being a rap star and get a record deal. It sounds easy. But the psychologist who runs a centre for abused street kids knows different. “Those kids feel shame about their bodies. They have a feeling of aggressiveness towards adults. It’s a threat to society.” Senegalese law is not on his side though. On paper paedophiles can be imprisoned for 10 years yet they rarely receive such harsh treatment. Last year a Canadian paedophile admitted guilt to the Senegalese police. He was fined $3000. Locals don’t want to talk about the lively influx of sex tourists. They don’t want their beautiful heritage-town to get a reputation. Nor do they want to put off tourists of any kind. It’s a sad indictment of poverty that anyone with money can get exactly what they want. A paedophile victim understands how the bribes work. “He said if I told he’d get into trouble and the money transfers back home would be stopped.” Some Europeans and a South African have been living in Goree for years. Everyone knows that they are paedophiles. But nobody says anything. Silence means more tourism – but for the children it means a destroyed life.

As many as one in 10 children are thought to be involved in the sex trade in Mombasa, Kenya, where sex tourists are fuelling a crisis. And a warning: This story contains sexual references.
Read more here: http://ab.co/1FDyLRm
Paul Adhoch heads the United Nations aid agency Trace Kenya, which battles the trafficking of children.
He believes sex tourists in Kenya are creating a crisis.
“They are not relaxing at some beach or enjoying the wildlife,” Mr Adhoch told the ABC’s 7.30 program.
“They are, specifically, deep in the communities, in poverty stricken areas looking for sex — nothing else.”
The port city of Mombasa has been a centre of trade for hundreds of years and is now a hotspot for underage prostitution.
Trace Kenya estimates there could be as many as 40,000 child sex workers in the city, and the trade extends up and down the coast to the seaside resort towns of Malindi and Diani.

Sixteen teenagers ranging in age from 13 to 17 were recovered by law enforcement in a crackdown on child trafficking surrounding the Super Bowl last weekend. The FBI said the teens included high school students and young people reported missing by their families.
“It is the most significant operation we’ve had around a big event,” Michael Osborne of the FBI’s Violent Crimes Against Children Unit told ABC News. “This is the most recoveries we’ve had at one time.”
Officials said the vast majority of the rescued teens were girls.
Osborne said he calls taking the young people off the street “recoveries,” because the children are not charged. In child exploitation cases like this, law enforcement officials said operations are designed to remove the young victims from a life of exploitation and abuse.
“These recoveries are victim-focused,” Osborn said. “Many times these young people are kept in this life by pimps using sexual, physical and emotional abuse.”
The law enforcement effort to help the young victims goes well beyond providing overnight food, clothing and shelter, Osborne said. Over the course of the operation, the FBI’s victim specialists’ provided 70 women and children referrals to health care facilities, shelters, and other programs. Osborne said the FBI works with social service specialists to provide for the long-term needs of the victims as well.
“We provide everything we can to try to pull them out of their situation, like education information and family counseling,” Osborne said. The family counseling, he explained, is needed because many of the young girls who end up being exploited are runaways. “We know there is a very close correlation between runaway girls and prostitution.”
What is striking in many cases, he said, is that the young victims themselves don’t think they deserve the help. “They don’t think they are worth saving,” Osborne said. “Sometimes we are the only people in their lives who haven’t given up on them.”
The crackdown also identified and arrested 45 pimps and their associates. The arrests came in New York, New Jersey and in Connecticut in the days leading up to the Super Bowl.
Osborne said the FBI teamed with state and local law enforcement to develop intelligence about the movement of pimps and prostitutes into the vicinity of the Super Bowl, as they do with any big event, like a big game or convention. That’s because pimps and “facilitators” move girls around from state to state to find a large gathering of potential customers.
“High-profile special events, which draw large crowds, have become lucrative opportunities for child prostitution criminal enterprises,” said Ron Hosko, assistant director of the FBI’s Criminal Investigative Division. “The FBI and our partners remain committed to stopping this cycle of victimization and putting those who try to profit from this type of criminal activity behind bars.”
Osborne said many times, prostitutes are not walking the streets anymore, but rather their services are offered on internet sites by their pimps.
“No doubt about it, we had a lot of internet activity in the past week,” Osborne said.

39 Subic Bay’s Sex Bars | The Children Of The Sex Trade (Crime Documentary) | Real Stories
16 dec. 2016
This exceptional film follows two young sisters in the Philippines who help former Australian police and Special Forces officers rescue underage girls from sex bars.
In the Phillipines, over 800,000 women and children work in the sex-trade. Police corruption makes local law enforcement ineffective in protecting the most vulnerable groups from abuse. 16 year-old Michelle and 19 year-old Marisol were both abused by foreign men as children and had also worked in Subic Bay’s sex bars. They now work at PREDA, a human rights foundation set up in 1974 by Fr. Shay Cullen, an Irish Catholic priest. Together, with former Australian Federal Police officers, the group sets out on a sting operation to bring child-abusers to justice.
With exclusive access, this is a gripping investigation into an urgent crisis led by the brave, teenage sisters who sacrifice their own safety to save others from the same fate.
