Corruption and gender series: Jhinna Pinchi, Peruvian trafficking survivor and activista

Jhinna Pinchi is a Peruvian trafficking survivor and activist, awarded the 2014 International Woman of Courage Award in the United States. In this video, she shares her personal experiences and highlights some key points to combat the scourge of trafficking, such as the need to support victims’ institutions or to raise awareness in society as a whole.

This testimony was recorded in November 2019 in Lima (Peru), within the framework of the meeting “Women, Corruption and Trust: the Differentiated Impacts of Corruption on women in Latin America, Peru”, organised by the EUROsociAL+ Democratic Governance Area together with the Peruvian Secretariat for Integrity, the Judiciary and the Public Prosecutor’s Office.

The EUROsociAL+ Democratic Governance Area, through the good government action line, supports different Peruvian institutions (Public Prosecutor’s Office, the Judiciary and the High Level Commission on Anti-corruption-CAN), uniting their efforts to make the phenomenon of corruption associated with human trafficking visible and mitigate it.
