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, "...at 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.
