Female Perpetrators: The Role of Women in Child Sexual Exploitation
Part 1 of 2
(Original air date 12/1/16)
It is a well known fact that women and children are the most exploited victims of sexual exploitation. No doubt about it.
What most of society does not recognize is the significant number of cases where women are the perpetrators. Approximately 60% of cases posted on the Million Kids Facebook Page involve a female as a perpetrator. Surprisingly, many females are involved with child pornography. Sometimes, the perpetrator is the victim’s own mother.
In sex trafficking cases, the woman often acts as a “bottom girl,” who does the recruiting, training, marketing and management of the girls being exploited. In some instances, the “bottom girl” is as severely abused and exploited as the victims. In other instances, she is a hardened sociopath, who inflicts a more severe punishment and exploitation than the males involved in sex trafficking rings.
Join us Thursday, November 16, 2017 at 7:00 a.m. PST on VOICE AMERICA – Variety Channel as we explore several cases where the female is the perpetrator. We will examine large-scale Asian and Latin American sex trafficking rings led by women, as well as individual cases where women aggressively exploited victims of child sex trafficking. We will look at cases where women were prosecuted for producing and/or collecting large libraries of child pornography. We will try to understand the psychological aspects of female-dominated exploitation and the impact on the victim. We will also explore if there is a different standard of sentencing when the perpetrator is a woman.
“Like” Million Kids on Facebook to get involved so we can say together, “NEVER AGAIN SHOULD A CHILD BE VIOLATED!”
