Even though slavery was abolished more than a century ago, it has evolved to take up a more modern form; human trafficking. Those most affected are from poor communities promised better opportunities abroad only to be sold as sex slaves. In Nigeria, girls as young as fifteen are tricked into thinking they are traveling to Italy for better opportunities, only to be burdened with massive debts amounting to up to 25,000 euros. They perform sexual favors to try and pay this debt and are sold to other traffickers like goods. This is not any different from the trans-Atlantic slave trade; the only difference is this is happening in a modern world where everyone has rights. What are your thoughts?
