[http://www.essex.ac.uk/sociology/images/child-sex-traffic-poster.jpg]Film, slides and a discussion opened by Professors Lydia Morris and Miriam Glucksmann from Department of Sociology, University of Essex

16 December 2010

At 16:00 in Room 6.345 (Colchester Campus) and afterwards in the Sociology Common Room.

In October, a group from the Sociology Department went to Delhi, and while there visited a home for children rescued from brothels in the slums of the city. A National Geographic film portrays the widespread practice – 2 million women in prostitution in India, one third of whom are children below the age of 15. It also depicts the guerrilla-style raids to rescue children from brothels in the absence of effective law enforcement, combined with police corruption. Our group was deeply shocked by the experience, but also inspired by the campaign ‘Stop Trafficking and OPpression of women and children’ led by the parents of a former Essex PhD student, whose thesis was about child labour in India.

After screening the film, Lydia and Miriam will show a few photos of the home, the children and the rescuers, taken during our visit, and briefly describe the STOP campaign. They will raise for discussion issues of human rights, of caste, gender and sexual violence, and of the ‘economy’ that supports such widespread exploitation of girls and women.
