Sarah Besky, assistant professor of anthropology and international affairs, answers questions about the plight of young girls working in tea plantations in India as part of CNN's Freedom Project.

"Poverty and a lack of employment opportunities are" contributing factors that might make girls vulnerable to human trafficking.
