  • In this article, Dragiewicz presents a case for why feminist teachers should teach about human trafficking, and shares some of the resources and tactics that were useful to her in teaching this course. She discusses the debate between various feminist stances that divides the issue, and the different approaches that are commonly taken towards finding a solution (i.e. anti-prostitution, “end demand,” and human rights-based approaches).
