This objectification is symptomatic of a larger social problem: the tendency to define women by their sexuality.

Within 48 hours of running away from home, one in three young girls are at risk for human trafficking. Slavery seems to be a forgotten struggle. But as members of Baylor’s International Justice Mission and other students discovered during their spring break mission trip in Houston, sex trafficking brings human slavery to a reality.
