Frontline Program on Sex Slaves

PBS's Frontline recently aired a film, Sex Slaves, which examined human trafficking (often for sexual slavery) from Ukraine, Hungary, and Moldova. The accompanying website features a discussion forum, information on the profiled countries and interviews with victims and an acquaintance who sold one of the women, interviews with experts Deborah Finding, Victor Malarek, and Mary Cunneen, statistics and relevant links, and links to a chat with the Director published by the Washington Post. Unlike some other Frontline programs, this film cannot be viewed in its entirety online; there is a free complete transcript available on the site.
