Sex Trafficking and Sex Slavery

Sex slavery is a business that's reportedly bigger than ever.

According to an article titled The Face of Modern Slavery in this week's New York Times, " least 10 times as many girls are now trafficked into brothels annually as African slaves were transported to the New World in the peak years of the trans-Atlantic slave trade."

Sex trafficking has become a huge issue. And despite efforts by activist groups, many are still unaware that it is even happening.

I remember participating in a demonstration on the issue that got some media coverage in 2004. But still the numbers of people, mostly women being trafficked for sex, is continuing to increase.
