Argentina Prostitutes With Children

in Transnational Crime

The Argentine Prostitutes’ Association reports that 87 percent of sex workers in the country are single mothers.

Although prostitution is legal in Argentina, illegal brothels using human trafficking victims are reported in the country. In 2012, an anti-trafficking NGO assisted authorities in closing down 140 illegal brothels in Buenos Aires.
