02 The Right not to be Enslaved

Article 4

No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Directed by Nick Higgins

It has recently been estimated that there are some 6000 women working in Scotland as sex slaves.

This film tells the true stories of women forced to sell their bodies for sex on the city centre streets of Glasgow and behind the closed doors of suburbia.

An African woman recounts her horrific experience of being trafficked into the UK and being forced to work as a prostitute. Whilst several women who continue to find themselves forced onto the streets of Glasgow in a desperate effort to feed their drug addiction share their experiences of modern day slavery.
