Resumo

SILVA, Ana Paula da; BLANCHETTE, Thaddeus Gregory  e  BENTO, Andressa Raylane. Cinderella deceived: analyzing a Brazilian myth regarding trafficking in persons. Vibrant, Virtual Braz. Anthr. [online]. 2013, vol.10, n.2, pp.377-419. ISSN 1809-4341.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S1809-43412013000200012.

This article provides an overview of how trafficking in persons has come to be imagined in Brazil. We stipulate that a mythical narrative has become central to discourses about trafficking used to guide policy-makers and educate civil society. We perform a structural analysis of this myth arguing that its acceptance, combined with the persistence of laws that define trafficking solely as the migration of prostitutes, has shifted public discussion towards a paradigm of passivity and law enforcement where members of certain social categories must be "educated to understand that they are victims" and their movements must be curtailed.

Palavras-chave : Trafficking in persons; prostitution; Brazil; myths.
