This research studies the association between a country’s efforts to reduce trafficking and their literacy rate difference between men and women as a measure of gender inequality. An analysis of variance yielded statistically significant results that national efforts to combat human trafficking were associated with inequality between men and women in those nations. Discussion on how these results can inform efforts to hinder trafficking is included.
