. Sex trafficking is a contemporary form of slavery that violates women's fundamental human rights. Every year one to four million persons, predominantly women and girls but also men and boys, are trafficked for the purpose of commercial sexual exploitation. The traffic of women is the third most profitable crime next to the traffic of weapons and drugs. However, since women can be reused and resold more easily than needles, the traffic in women is expected to rise to the level of the second most lucrative international crime.
