Sex industry and internet industry: partners in the globalization of sexual exploitation
Date of Original Version
In the milieu of political and economic restructuring known as globalization, women and children are increasingly becoming commodities to be bought, sold and consumed by tourists, military personnel, organized crime rings, and men seeking sexual entertainment or non-threatening marriage partners. Those with power are using new information technologies to expand their capacity to exploit women and girls throughout the world. By financial and technological interdependence, the sex industry and the Internet industry have become partners in the global sexual exploitation of women and children.
