Kinship and trafficking: The case of the Bedia community

Anuja Agrawal, “Kinship and trafficking: The case of the Bedia community” (2003) Canadian Woman Studies, Vol 22 Nos 3-4, p.131

Introduction (our translation): “This article discusses the link between sex work and prostitution in India.

The author hopes that trafficking of women for prostitution is reexamined in light of the role played by families and kinship.”
