Abstract Share this page

Trafficking women is a result of poverty, un-employment and other social conventions. But, in this study, I have found that, among other factors, the main reasons for the traf-ficking of women in India are the cultural and religious practices of prostitution. Evidence shows that, every year, some 20,000 women are trafficked within India, with nearly 50 per cent originating from states where the cultural and religious practice of prostitution is ob-served. During the past few decades, India has made great progress in terms of economic growth. However, there persist practices, at-titudes and behaviors that continue to subor-dinate and oppress women. Perhaps the most telling evidence is the cultural and religious practice of prostitution in some Indian com-munities. In the present study, an attempt has been made to show how traditional and reli-gious practices in India provoke the problem of trafficking women in present-day society.
