Trafficking as Aberration / 23 This page intentionally left blank Part I. Global The success of feminist or­ga­niz­ing against gender vio­lence is considered one of the most significant for global ­women’s rights. To expose vio­lence against ­women is to expose a basic and common experience of female subjugation. Indeed, who is not against gender vio­lence? But the recognition of vio­lence is not neutral; it carries specific understandings of why vio­lence happens and even meanings of what vio­lence is.

Both are part of a system of gender-­ based domination that makes vio­lence against ­women and girls profitable to a mind-­boggling extreme. Both prey on ­women and girls made vulnerable by poverty, discrimination, and vio­lence and leave them traumatized, sick, and impoverished. Both reward predators sexually and financially, strengthening both the demand and criminal operations that ensure the supply. The concerted effort by some ngos and governments to disconnect trafficking from prostitution—to treat them as distinct and unrelated phenomena—is nothing less than a deliberate po­liti­cal strategy aimed at legitimizing the sex industry and protecting its growth and profitability.

Bernstein provocatively argues that in order to address the burgeoning economy in commercial sexual ser­vices, which includes circumstances of exploitation, “a sober analy­sis of the global inequalities (of sex, of class, of race, and of nation) that drive ­women into sexual l­ abor, and of the ways that these inequalities are themselves created through specific practices and policies” is needed (185). And it is this analy­sis of the broader po­liti­cal economy of precarious l­ abor that is missing from most approaches to antitrafficking.
