Hollywood, the media and society generally have taken acts of slavery, rape and abduction and re-package and re-labelled them as trafficking. Whilst acknowledging a state of victimhood and affording women protection, the concern is that if the woman in need of help does not fit the profile then the system fails to see that she is a victim. In relation to children, those in international private fostering arrangements are often ascribed to have been trafficked and/or invisible. But are they? When it is mis-inscribed does the language of trafficking serve as a potential smoke screen for the real issues including professional failings?
