Dont think a male child is safer than girls in any way

A 28-year-old professional opens up about how being sexually abused as a boy impacted his speech, his confidence and altered his personality for life, and why it is important for survivors to speak up. I am sure it is very difficult for a girl to speak up, but let me tell you, it is as tough or probably tougher if you are a boy. I have felt helpless and alone in my emotional battle against the trauma of sexual abuse as a child. The sense of shame was very intense. I want to tell everyone reading my story that dont think the male child is safer than girls in any way. I am a 28-year-old working professional and I want to share my story now because I want people to know that it is not your fault if someone has abused you. There is nothing to be ashamed of. I want people to speak up.

The Centre has passed the Trafficking of Persons (Prevention, Protection and Rehabilitation) Bill, 2018, in the Lok Sabha that leaves out millions of victims of sex trafficking from its very definition. While the Bill mentions that “trafficking in human beings may be for sexual and physical exploitation,” sexual exploitation is not mentioned either in the definitions section or in the criminal provisions. In 2011, India ratified the Palermo Protocol to prevent, suppress and punish trafficking in persons, especially women and children. So, it has an obligation to implement it domestically.
