The story I chose from the WomenWatch feed is fairly recent and shocking, as well.
Egypt is responsible of human trafficking, which involves especially children and women.
Human trafficking is one of the worst and most horrible violation of human rights that can possibly happen.
The women are currently being trafficked for the purposes of forced labour and sexual exploitation. About one million women are exploited in prostitution and forced begging. Some local gangs are involved in these exploitations, as well.
Obviously, in front of such atrocities, the United Nations will take action. Tomorrow the UN independent expert on human trafficking will begin her first official visit to Egypt.
This UN Rapporteur, Miss. Joy Ngozi Ezeilo, will a****s progress made by the Egyptian government against human trafficking, which involves especially women.
She will visit some of Egypt's most important cities, such as Cairo and Minya, with representatives of the Government and the judiciary. Miss. Ezeilo will also examine day care centers and shelters, where the victims of trafficking are being rehabilitated.
We all wait impatiently for the results of this visit, hoping that women trafficking has decreased in Egypt.
