Protect Girls and Women from Sex Trafficking

The Indian Immoral Traffic Prevention Act has been failing to protect girls and women from sex trafficking. It criminalizes and stigmatizes trafficking victims and allows the true perpetrators of crime - traffickers, pimps, johns - to exploit women and children with impunity.

Join the members of Apne Aap Women Worldwide in a global call to change outdated policies and empower women and girls.

We appeal to the President of India for a law that prohibits the purchase of sexual services and addresses the root cause of prostitution and sex trafficking: the demand and men who assume the right to buy and sell human beings for sexual exploitation.

Together, we can end sex trafficking.

This petition was delivered to:
  • President of India
    The Government of India
