Sexploitation to carry wider legal meaning

The legal definition of ‘sexual exploitation’ could be expanded to include portrayal of women in a sexual manner in newspapers, television channels and websites, a step that could bring a paradigm shift in the visual and graphical representation of women in media.

National Legal Services Authority (Nalsa) submitted a report to the Supreme Court with a recommendation for expansion of the definition of ‘sexual exploitation’, saying the Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act enacted more than half a century ago to stop trafficking of women for prostitution had miserably failed to achieve the purpose.

The Nalsa report also recommended setting up of nodal agencies at the national and state levels to monitor various agencies working to stop trafficking of women and children. It also recommended formulating standard operating procedure for the agencies.

“The Supreme Court may issue a direction to the central government to set up an organized crime investigation agency in order to have cases of human trafficking and organized crime investigated.
