An excellent resource. Touching and informative, this is a call to join the movement to eradicate slavery, violence against and inequality of women worldwide. As we bicker over parking spaces, and ponder over new ipods or necklaces, there are millions of human beings sold into sex slavery, raped and violated in one form or another on a daily basis. The awareness has always been there, but through this book, a transformative seed has been planted.
