Within the context of China's gender imbalance, cross-border trafficking of women from neighboring countries into China for marriage is an astonishingly increasing but neglected issue. In this explorative study, we first review the trafficking of women from several main source countries. Then we introduce the trafficking process and present a profile of the criminals. We still explore the actions to combat trafficking carried out by related stake-holders. Finally, we analyze the obstacles to the prevention and rescue of trafficked women. To completely eradicate trafficking in women, the Chinese government has to make long-term efforts to redress the gender imbalance.
