As grim as the idea of rape with limited to no punishment can be, it is becoming a reality. From not being taken seriously to being completely ignored, rape and sexual assault are treated as minor crimes to many people. Certain laws allow these crimes to be brushed away when in reality, rape can be fatal. The severe impact rape and sexual assault can have on a person lasts a lifetime, with no breath of fresh air or sanity. The mild consequences perpetrators face desensitizes the rest of the world and our growing society to the true horrors of rape and strengthens rape culture.
As George Bernard Shaw states, "The greatest of all evils and the worst of all crime is POVERTY", shows that it is quite an astonishing way regarding consequences and the causes of poverty would brought up to be a crime in the society. (Shaw, 1906) What is poverty? Poverty is about not having enough money to meet basic needs including food, clothing and shelter. However, poverty is more, much more than just not having enough money. As regards to poverty, there are many countries that had suffered poverty, and even striking the middle class status in the Western's countries.

Around the world there are millions of people that are trapped in child labor which is a major setback in their education, health and which forces them to spend their life in sufferings and poverty. Child labor is not confined to only one sector it is spread over several sectors, including agriculture, manufacturing, mining and domestic service. Child labor is a great threat for many developing countries. Not only on social grounds, it is also not desirable from an economic point of view as it hinders and create barriers for human capital advancement in the long run. Developing countries which have high rate of population are often resource-stricken which means that any enhancement in the quality of human capital will improve the growth level of the economy.
If children live in poverty or can’t obtain any food to eat, their future will have major consequences to come. “Poverty can affect every aspect of a child’s development, limiting their social, educational and personal development” (http://www.gateshead.gov.uk). They can’t focus in the work, suffer through poor health, less likely to have a good jobs as adults, more likely to leave school before high school graduation, and less likely to have major opportunities. They are more likely to stay at home, working to try and help their families without having an opportunity await them. Crime is also a negative effect to people that goes through poverty.
For example, according to John Iceland (2006) there are three main reasons why poverty continues to be a critical issue in the United States, as follows. • The hardship that often accompanies poverty has adverse effects on individuals' physical and psychological well-being. It undermines children’s healthy cognitive and psychosocial development; it breeds a variety of antisocial behaviors, including violence; and it is associated with poorer physical health and shorter life expectancy (Lichter and Crowley, 2002). Moreover, poverty often begets more poverty, as those who grow up in poor families are more likely to be poor themselves as adults. • As economies thrive in societies with a vibrant middle class, declining levels of poverty contribute to a healthy economy by increasing the number of people who can purchase goods and services; that increase, in turn, stimulates economic growth and raises average standards of living.
In developing countries, Child less than 18 years works very hard works. Many causes make them accept like these works as the Globalization and the poverty that is the main cause that forces the parents to force their children to work, also the school problem from the distance of the school to the quality of education. The child labor has a lot of consequences as the physical consequences which may lead to delay in physical development or the higher risk for diseases such as respiratory illnesses, other consequence is the difficulty in social development which leads to several Psychiatric illnesses. The government works on this problem by establishing laws and polices but unfortunately all this efforts are not effective, so there must be more effort to facing the poverty and changing the parents thinking to let their child to educate and enjoy their childhood. Not only government has a role but also all people in society have to cooperate to have a society without a child labor today to have a society without any criminals or Patients
Sometimes people cannot comprehend why they stay on this earth if this is what they experience day after day without end. The bad in a person's life completely outweighs the good and they can no longer understand that there are still good parts of this life, just not where they are now. When people hurt themselves, they usually want to know that they still have some sort of control since they cannot bring it out of themselves at school or wherever else they are being bullied. They might want to escape this never ending sense of emptiness that they have inside them. And it might work for them, but it does way more harm than good.
Reasons why human trafficking is widespread in the international arena Among the main factors that contribute to human trafficking are poverty and the lack of opportunity to generate income. This is due to many determinants such as corruption, discrimination, overpopulation which ultimately leads to economic crisis. The desperation arising out of the conditions set out above pushes individuals to look for work and a better life elsewhere which puts them at the risk of being exploited.
