The Children Trapped in Bangladesh’s Brothel Village

“The children trapped in Bangladesh’s brothel village” is a documentary from The Guardian and it shares the lives of female sex workers in a village in Bangladesh. There are approximately 1600 female sex workers in this village. Most of these women are either sold by their boyfriends, pimps, or family members, or are kidnapped by gangs. Girls enter the sex work by age 8, so when daughters are born they become susceptible to entering this workforce. The documentary showcases that to effectively combat this cycle of generational poverty; sufficient access to resources, job opportunities, education and government aid is required.
