Sex Slaves

Emmy Award-winning Sex Slaves investigates one of the most exploitative and lucrative trades in the world, Sunday, Feb. 28, at 10 p.m. ET/PT, on THE PASSIONATE EYE, on CBC News Network.

An estimated half-million women are trafficked annually for the purpose of sexual slavery. They are “exported” to more than 50 countries, including Britain, Italy, Japan, Germany, Israel, Turkey, China, Kosovo, Canada and the United States. Misunderstood and widely tolerated, sex trafficking has become a multi-billion dollar underground industry. Sex Slaves is directed by award-winning Canadian filmmaker Ric Bienstock in association with THE PASSIONATE EYE.
