Dance helps sex trafficking victims

Teenagers who once worked in India’s sex trade showed how dance is helping them leave their previous lives behind.

Five girls performed for U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her visit to India.

They are part of Kolkata Sanved, a dance therapy movement founded in 2004 by Sohini Chakraborty, a dance sociologist and dance activist. It provides an alternative approach to therapy and healing for victims of violence and trafficking.

The 2011 Trafficking in Persons Report, produced by the State Department, said: “India does not fully comply with the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking; however, it is making significant efforts to do so."

        I think it's fair enough to say that victimization of young women is a universal problem. The only way any nation, ethnic group, or club can look down on another for crimes such as rape is if they don't practice the crime themselves. Rape happens EVERYWHERE, everyone's $#*! stinks.
