ABSTRACT

Human trafficking is a global phenomenon, and in most cases, women are core victims of trafficking for sexual purposes. The push and pull factors are what contribute to the growth of trafficking, in which traffickers use the pull factors to lure vulnerable women and girls into this global capitalist flesh trade. This study will be using Chika Unigwe’s On Black Sisters’ Street and Ifeanyi Ajaegbo’s Sarah House as case study to examine how women are being subjected to all forms of exploitation and oppression in the world of trafficking. The theoretical approach to this study is Marxist Feminism which reveals how powerful individuals (traffickers) gain wealth through the business of buying and selling of women for sexual purposes, thereby exploiting and robbing them of their self-worth and dignity as humans in a classed society.
