Happy International Women’s Day!
In honor and recognition of the women still fighting for their freedom, Polaris posted this image with these statistics:
- 11.4 women and girls are victims of human trafficking globally.
- 84% of survivors who have called the NHTRC are women.
- 18 countries have been provided training and technical assistance by Polaris to fight human trafficking.
To all the women still fighting for their freedom or their rights: Fight on, woman, and keep the faith!
If you would like to help fight against human trafficking (both men and women, boys and girls, are enslaved and trafficked both domestically and abroad) the Polaris project website is a great place to start learning about the issue and how you can help. www.polarisproject.org
