In this episode of Humans ≠ Sale, three sex trafficking survivors talk about their story of abuse, rescue and rehabilitation. According to data, 95% of trafficked persons in India are forced into prostitution (Divya, 2020). But this is not an issue limited to just data points. In India, human trafficking is still a subject which is considered a taboo. The fight for human rights becomes a long wait for justice for the survivors. In this show we will talk about such stories and how can we bring a change in the narrative. But how did this story come to see the light of day? What were some of the biggest challenges along the way? And what effect does a story of this nature have on those attempting to tell it, let's find out. Fighting their cases in court, learning about legal compensation and working in the community to create awareness about trafficking, these survivors have become leaders in their journey to justice.
