The geographical location of Bangladesh makes her a hub of human trafficking. The social structure of the country is patriarchal, and women are still treated as a lower class citizen. There are several papers written on the causation of trafficking in Bangladesh. However, this paper has a distinct intention and tries to analyze women trafficking in terms of a theoretical explanation. It will establish a link between the Routine Activity theory (Cohen & Felson, 1979) and trafficking of women from Bangladesh for sex business. By conducting a comprehensive review of the literature, the paper explains how the factors of women trafficking undergo with the elements of this victimological theory. It ends with giving emphasis on collective approaches between organizations who are working to prevent women trafficking in Bangladesh.
