UNITED NATIONS (Map, News) - Surprisingly, the perpetrators behind human trafficking around the world are often women, the U.N. reported Thursday.
Women are the majority of traffickers in almost a third of the 155 nations the U.N. surveyed. They accounted for more than 60 percent of the human trafficking convictions in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
For many, human trafficking is a world they had been pulled into themselves.
"Women commit crimes against women, and in many cases the victims become the perpetrators," Antonio Maria Costa, director of the Vienna-based U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime, said in an interview. "They become the matrons of the business and they make money. It's like a drug addiction."

Logically, if that same person was treated in a way that was dehumanizing from very early on (more likely with females where many cultures see females as property and often disposable property as a cultural norm) this consistent treatment might be MORE likely to cause women as a whole to show sociopathic traits.
