Aisha Thank you for creating this list


message 2: by C!NDY (new)

C!NDY  L00 I'm surprised it wasn't done sooner. It is a very important topic with a lot literature out there. I thought perhaps that I could bring some attention to all the reading material that is available. I'm hoping it will be some help for those who want to learn more.

Thank you Aisha for your nice comment.


message 3: by Lisa Ess (new)

Lisa Ess Yes, thank you very much for this list. It is critically necessary to spread the information about this insanity to people that don't even know it's happening.


message 4: by Laurie (last edited Nov 23, 2012 11:52PM) (new)

Laurie After reading the novel A Walk Across the Sun by Corban Addison I wanted to learn more about this horrifying practice. He listed some books, articles & documentaries as a place to start & highly recommends the organization International Justice Mission (IJM) as a place to donate to, or put your skills to use in the fight against slavery. Thank you for posting this comprehensive list.

I agree this is a really important issue. Thanks for this list, I'm reading Girls Like us right now.

Rock Angel In May 2013 a German newspaper published this 5-part series on "How Legalizing Prostitution Has Failed", 10 years after the country passed its permissive laws.

"Where prostitution is legal, there is more human trafficking than elsewhere"

http://www.spiegel.de/international/g...

There is also a June 2013 documentary "Sex: made in Germany" that investigates the approximately one million transactions that takes place daily in that country (no it's not a typo). I think it is not yet available in English.

Rock Angel I want to hear what others think of the legalization of sex trade:
http://thecnnfreedomproject.blogs.cnn...

Countries where prostitution is legal:
Netherlands, New Zealand, Australia, Germany

Countries that adopted the Nordic Model, an approach that criminalizes the purchase of sex but not the sex workers:
Sweden, Norway and Iceland

Nordic model:

Anastasia Great list! Thanks for starting it.


message 9: by Emma (new)

Emma Removed two books by Tom Davis which are fiction while this is a non-fiction list


message 10: by Asteropê (last edited May 07, 2019 11:08PM) (new)

Asteropê These are FICTION -

Sold - Patricia McCormick
"Written in spare and evocative vignettes, this powerful novel renders a world that is as unimaginable as it is real, and a girl who not only survives but triumphs."

Stolen - Lucy Christopher
"A stunning debut novel with an intriguing literary hook: written in part as a letter from a victim to her abductor. Sensitive, sharp, captivating!"

Trafficked - Kim Purcell
"Many reluctant readers won't be able to put down this riveting novel ... The characters ring true and as the plot reaches a crisis point, readers will be drawn in by the suspense of Hannah's captivity."


Edit: 5/7/2019
Since it's been nearly a month and the list maker hasn't removed the above books, I did.
