Sexwork is Different From Trafficking

Sex trafficking currently is and has always been a global problem which is often confused with sexwork. The exact number of people trapped because of sex trafficking is nearly impossible to be understood because of the hidden nature of the crime.

At WINS we work with vulnerable groups of women with a clear understanding about the differences between the two:


When a person willingly involves in sale of sex, when it is consensual it would not be a violation of human rights. This is called Sexwork.

Sex Trafficking

When a person takes part in sex through the means of coercion like threat or abduction which is a clear violation of human rights, it is known as Sex Trafficking.

WINS has been relentlessly working towards educating the civil society, police personnel and individuals about the nuances
