Olivia G. Nifong Mrs. Gallos English 3 honors 25 March 2018 Sexual Human Trafficking Although it is illegal in the US, people are still trafficking others, and the rate of trafficking continues to rise. Sexual trafficking is a huge problem that needs to be stopped immediately and the statistics show that trafficking is going up more and more every single year. sexual trafficking is a trade of people from one country to another. It is usually done to sexually exploit someone and is usually illegal and without the victims consent. Sexual trafficking abuses our God-given human rights.
All mental illnesses all come with a certain stigma; A stigma that labels every person that is suffering as ‘retarded’ or ‘damaged’. The uneducated population often mistake a stigma for a stereotype, however, a stereotype has nothing to do with degrading the quality of a person, but rather judgements based off of physical features. Stigma literally means, “a mark of disgrace associated with a particular circumstance, quality, or person,” stigmas in today 's society are becoming more prevalent as more issues arise. This theme of stigmatized mental illness is highly prevalent in the autobiography, Girl Interrupted, by Susanna Kaysen, the politics of today and in normal family life. The younger woman in the book offers a new perspective into the life of someone under the roof of a mental institution in 1967.
Sally also shows these same trends of being forced to be a caregiver. It says on page 101 sally even gets less than that “Looking out the window is the last hope and pleasure of many of the trapped women of Mango Street, but Sally’s husband denies her even that.” The book The House on Mango Street is used in my opinion to show the impact of others around you, the impact of men on women just seems the most apparent. It shows how others before you can make you live life with such narrow vision, such little possible imagination, especially when you don't know what to imagine. Esperanza is different, that is how the author needed it, to show us that people can be different, that change is
For instance, if a person is raised to think that stealing is wrong, they have also witnessed how others who do steal are treated by society. Because they know that they will be treated badly by the society they are less likely to steal. Overall, I agree with what Fromm says because I am less likely to be disobedient because I do not want to be looked down upon by society. He means that disobedience sets individuals free and opens their eyes. A person is able to evolve from acts of disobedience because they are able to break primary bonds with nature and authority.
To a certain extent the theme rich vs poor can also relate to society. For instance, because the first impressions of the “hood” are always bad, we just assume they are belligerent and bad. However, in reality, people that dress well and have an impressive demeanor is not always good. As people make these assumptions, they often do not see the dreadful and idiotic things they do. For example, Donald Trump had been accused of sexual harassment by eight women and there has been nothing done to help these women.
The state of knowledge surrounding immigrant and domestic violence is plentiful and offers many narratives as to why women endure these toxic relationships, but do not explore ways to aid these women and create safer lives. “Latinas experiencing intimate partner violence (IPV) often avoid formal resources due to fear, distrust, and cultural and language barriers, yet little research addresses culturally appropriate interventions for abused Latinas” (Bloom et al., 2009, p. 244). Families are mentioned as being support systems and important in the Latino community, but also enablers of remaining in relationships where domestic violence is present. There are still plenty of other reasons Mexican immigrant women endure these types of relationships and exploring other systems in their lives would be appropriate to continue
In addition to the lack of education, there is also a great deal of ignorance in our communities when recognizing those who may be forced into sexual exploitation. It is not their fault but in a sense it is ours for the lack of involvement. We must pay our communities more attention and speak out for the voiceless, it is our job to help prevent this horrific crime from happening to these innocent women and children. The lack of involvement is also one of the largest epidemics on the widespread of Human Trafficking. For example, Theresa Flores was a 15 year old teenager, just like any other teenager, loved track, enjoyed school, and was an exceptional student, so most would assume, but what you didn’t know about her is she had been forced into a lifestyle unimaginable.
The controversial idea of females being sex offenders is represented by the proportion of women in jail or accused is most likely disproportionate to reality. In the United Kingdom for example, the Lucy Faithfull Foundation estimates that up to 64,000 women are sex offenders, yet fewer than 2 percent of the people on the sex offenders registry are women (Townsend & Syal, 2009). Female sex offenders are often ignored and under reported due to gender roles that portray men who were assaulted or who believe they were assaulted as weak. Additionally low female offender percentage is due to police and other professionals not treating male rape victims as a serious concern. In addition, media portrayals of sexual assault and rape create an everyday
Those convicted may not be the heads of the criminal group or make the largest profits. Bales account highlights that ‘while the prostitutes are all captured’, raid after raid brothel keepers escape. (Bales, P.73) As brothel keepers escape prosecution, they can replace the arrested prostitutes by trafficking additional victims to work in their brothels; thereby worsening the extent of human trafficking. Moreover, not all sex workers chose prostitution out of free will; some of them are victims of trafficking and were placed in a position without alternatives and it would be unjust to prosecute them for what they coerced or deceived into. While the trafficking protocol is meant to protect these victims, the ability of law enforcement in dealing with this complex issue may potentially lead to criminalisation of the victims while the perpetrators of trafficking are not prosecuted.
In this day and age the legality of prostitution as aprofession shouldn’t be and isn’t an issue anymore asthese women need the means to earn so they can keep themselves off the streets (or on them, if that’s what’s required of them). The major troubling issue, however, is the mistreatment they face from their customers and pimps as well as the society itself which would rather shun them for being dragged into a stigmatized profession instead of extending a helping hand to rescue them from the gutters. The treatment these sex workers are subjected to on a daily basis is inhumane to say the least and their inability to take any legal recourse makes things even worse. Forced into a life of terror and subjugation, abused by customers and their madames, some even shipped off to our neighbouring countries, there aren’t too many places these women can turn to for
