According to news of this Feb 2009 report from United Nations, women are the majority of traffickers in almost a third of 155 nations surveyed by UN. This goes to show that both genders have their share of human weaknesses and crime, and one should not assume blindly that world will be a better place if only more women were in political power, in corporate leadership, as CEOs or whatever else feminists want you to believe.
Women are the majority of traffickers in almost a third of the 155 nations the U.N. surveyed. They accounted for more than 60 percent of the human trafficking convictions in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
For many, human trafficking is a world they had been pulled into themselves.
“Women commit crimes against women, and in many cases the victims become the perpetrators,” Antonio Maria Costa, director of the Vienna-based U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime, said in an interview. “They become the matrons of the business and they make money. It’s like a drug addiction.”
