Have just finished reading “Trafficked” by Kathleen Maltzahn. I’d tracked down the book because I was doing some research into the sex slave trade for my next novel. “Trafficked” is a compelling and disturbing read about the horrific treatment of young women brought into Australia, often illegally, to work in brothels where they then have no rights, no dignity and no escape.
Check out Project Respect – an organisation helping women caught up in the trade. It seems to be something we in ‘polite society’ turn an indifferent shoulder to and ignore.
