Women sex trafficking other women: the problem is getting worse

More and more women are luring victims into prostitution, with the UK considered fertile ground. So what can be done?

Ever since Cynthia Payne became famous for accepting Luncheon Vouchers in lieu of sexual services in the 1987 hit film Personal Services, the female pimp has been glamorised and made to seem benign. But women who trade in women can be as brutal and cruel as their male counterparts and their numbers across Europe are increasing.

Banjit* has horrific first-hand experience of being controlled by a female trafficker. Arriving in the UK from Thailand in 2005 to support her impoverished family by working in a brothel, she says: “I knew I would be provided with food and accommodation in the UK, and would have to repay £27,000 to a Thai woman, but I was unsure as to how much that actually was.”
