“Education makes a people easy to lead but difficult to drive, easy to govern, but impossible to enslave”
~Peter Brougham – 19th century Slavery Abolitionist
Sadly, across the world we have seen an increase in abuse against vulnerable girls and young women. This can take the form of domestic abuse, forced marriages and human trafficking. It is estimated that a third of women will have experienced physical and sexual violence, mostly at the hands of their partner. The illegal trade in humans is second only to the drugs trade in terms of profitability, it is worth an estimated $100bn per annum, more than the profits of Nike, Intel, Google, Microsoft and Starbucks combined.
The impact on the women is immense, leading to physical and mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, emotional distress and eating disorders.
