The MTV EXIT (End Exploitation and Trafficking) campaign is a multimedia initiative produced by MTV EXIT Foundation (formerly known as the MTV Europe Foundation) to raise awareness and increase prevention of human trafficking and modern slavery. The MTV EXIT Foundation is a registered UK charity launched by MTV Networks Europe in 2003 to use the power and influence of MTV's brand and broadcasting network to educate young people about the social issues affecting their lives
Presented by Angelina Jolie, is a documentary that provides an introduction to the human rights tragedy of trafficking of women and girls for sexual exploitation in Europe. Featuring Anna, a woman from Romania, who was trafficked by her neighbour to the Balkans where she was forced to be a prostitute for 2.5 years; and Tatiana, a victim who spent 6 months as a sex slave in Amsterdam after being sold by her boyfriend.
Their stories are told alongside other characters in the trafficking chain, including a potential victim, a young man who pays for sex, an anti-trafficking police officer, and prevention and assistance organizations. The show was produced in 2005 and is available in Czech, English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian and Spanish.
"It is a tragedy that in the 21st century hundreds of thousands of people are trafficked and exploited every year. I hope that MTV's EXIT Campaign will empower women and girls in particular to protect themselves from trafficking by making informed decisions about their futures, and help all of us to understand that we have the responsibility - and the power - to help end exploitation and trafficking, wherever they occur, in whatever form."
