Argentine mothers fight sex trafficking

Mothers of missing girls in Argentina take on traffickers and their collaborators.

    Families of hundreds of disappeared Argentine women say they have been kidnapped into the sex trade.

    A growing movement, comprised of mothers of the missing is putting increasing pressure on the government and traffickers to end the practice and put an end to complicity within security forces that they say are collaborating with the traffickers.
