NO ESCAPE

Brothels Enslave Spanish Women

One woman was forced into the sex trade by her boyfriend. Another was tattooed with the amount of money she owed the traffickers who had enslaved her. Across Spain, experts say, the trafficking of foreign women for the sex trade has become big money, powered by young men who take advantage of the country’s few regulations on prostitution. The U.S. State Department’s last report on sex trafficking in Spain was released in 2010 and found that 90 percent of the 200,000 to 400,000 prostitutes working in the country were doing so against their will.
