Myanmar’s women trafficked to China at risk of sexual violence

Traffickers are increasingly preying on the despair of women who feel they have no choice but to seek work across the border.

Conflict in Myanmar‘s northern state of Kachin is forcing more people from their homes.

A ceasefire between the government and the Kachin Independence Army ended in 2011.

Since then, instability has been putting many families at risk, including women who are being trafficked to China.
