Sex trafficking isn't what you think it is | Meghan Sobel | TEDxMileHighWomen

“When I first started studying sex trafficking in 2008, I thought it mean girls were kidnapped and chained to beds,” explains Professor Meghan Sobel. Soon she realized that was the Hollywood version – not the reality. In order to combat sex trafficking effectively, we must first understand what it is.

Meghan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication at Regis University, where she teaches classes on international communication, public relations, and human rights. Meghan’s research focuses on the role of mass media in combating human rights abuses and humanitarian crises. She is also a certified cake decorator.

  1. He spent 4 years in prison for stealing $80, but some rapists in America spend only 4 months in prison…. where is the justice

  2. Astonishing video, i enjoy it to much .. Unbeaten part is 0:39. I upload one twerk, Please check it out and comment your opinion 💖 💛 💘

  3. The children are the providers in this culture? So… If I grow up here, have a kid and immediately move to Thailand.. I'll never have to work a day in my life 😀 lol. I joke I joke, I kid I kid.

  4. مـــين🥰 يـــرحـــب🥰 بـي🥰 يــضـغط لايـك🥰ويــــراســنـي خـــــاص واشـتـرك بـقـنـاتـــي

  5. the reason that it's not been sufficiently addressed on a state or federal level is that western/american money is often behind propagation & profits on this in all its forms.
    it would take down too many old & powerful; therefore: it's slow & suppressed. just like the U.K. 20+ years ago; those convicted were 'expendable' and probably know their lives are forfeit if they talk about others they know of. (ie: Epstein, 2019)
    sufficient legislation needs to move Civil Asset Forfeiture into this arena: to freeze & seize assets on perpetrators, minimum sentencing, generous statute of limitations, as well as international agreements.
    also, even: some form of psych help for self-identified who have not acted on this, to get help, get a reality check on effects of what their impulses/drives have on other human beings. <that's a hard thing vs what happens to them already, but part of justice is mercy as well as accountability/ responsibility for the actions of any crime(s).

    …-Will- this happen? that depends on the priorities of people, and their demands upon their governments

  6. The sextrafficking industry and lack of affordable housing pushes the underclass into perpetual economic poverty for generations. I am really seeing how the same issues are worldwidely universal.

  7. "Christian Center for Science and Apologetics"
    This is a CIA front for child trafficking,1 of many.
    How much isn't public yet? How many orphanages in Ukraine?
    Head of Ukraine Church thanks CIA asa-dir? JACK DEVINE
    Normal? ISP control? Roads & Cages.

  8. She acts like our uncles and dads tell us they're going to Malaysia and Vietnam for red light districts at xmas dinner and we can persuade them to stop lol….until the laws prohibit and prosecute these,….
    those rich white old men will keep flying there and doing it…..or they just stay here and do it.

  9. So "trafficking" is a poor choice of word. Kinda like how "aggravated" in law refers to wielding a weapon while in mainstream English it refers to an emotional state
