Trafficked tells the story of a rare human rights campaign that succeeded in changing government policy to protect women smuggled into Australia each year to work in the sex trade. In 2003, the Coronial Inquiry into Puongtong Simaplee’s 2001 death at the Villawood Detention Centre put the issue of trafficking for prostitution in Australia on the national agenda for the first time. Trafficked contains first-person accounts of women like Puongtang, stories that inspired women's groups to make sure trafficked women could no longer be ignored.
