There are many theoretical studies and action research available on the subject of prostitution and human trafficking. In every culture, women are discriminated against compared to men , often reflections about gender differences expressed by narratives recall victimization, and / or claim. The proposed study aims to listen to the stories of women who have been victims of trafficking or prostitution. These women did not choose this employment that is ethically and morally questionable, but they are women who have been victims of an abuse of their human dignity and their freedom. The attempt to trace the narrative patterns used by these women to rebuild their world and define the matrices to anticipate events allows us to understand the patterns of typing and relationships that create new social contexts and individual paths. Our inquiry, therefore, starts from an analysis of the reports provided by women who rebel against their condition of slavery, and are on their way to escaping from violence. These woment have been supported by organizations that provide psychological and practical support .The analysis of the text was designed using SPAD, because of its peculiarities not only in the dictionary context, but also in the construction of an analysis of the lexical correspondence.
