Women Trafficking from North Korea

After escaping from North Korea, women are often taken in by human traffickers where they are sold for $1,500. The women are usually sold either to elderly farmers as a wife or to Internet Sex Shows operators.

More than 90 percent of women who escape North Korea and enter China end up victims of human trafficking.
