Victims of the sex trafficking trade in Kolkata, India, have turned to creative measures to cope with the pain of their former existence. The women of Kolkata Sanved, a dance therapy company founded in 2004 by Sohini Chakraborty, express themselves through beautiful movement, helping them to rebuild a once shattered image. “Sanved”, which means “that which responds to stimulus” according to CNN , is an approach in efforts to “break the barriers of traditional dance; employing body movements to transform victims of sexual abuse into ‘proactive advocates’  for themselves.”

The women recently held a performance for Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, demonstrating their strength and grace without saying a word.
