Abstract:     
Every day across the Americas, men, women, and children are forced to work in degrading circumstances due to structural poverty and inequality. Women and girls are often subjected to the worst abuses. The purpose of this essay is not to solve these problems. That is a job for the women who experience and resist subordination in their daily lives and their advocates. Instead, this essay has a more modest goal – to urge advocates to think critically about the task ahead and what limits, if any, should be placed on potential solutions.
