Born Female

"The problem of prostitution and human trafficking in India."

Shakti bhaini is the name of the non-profit social program started by three brothers all who left their careers as bankers, bureaucrats, and journalists to help trafficked women.

If these trends continues, within 20 years 1 in 5 Indian women will have been trafficked.

In the end, interviewing some village men in Bengal, they said that if they women don't continue to work the fields while they sit around idly, they'll just beat them. But this is what they saw modeled for them by their elders for generations. This was seen as part of what allowed such a flesh trade to flourish.
