Sirila Padi's curator insight, December 5, 2013 8:48 PM

This article appears on my page because it shows that sex traffickig is not only happening by men. No a 22 year old women helps sell a 15 year old female for sexit shows. It displays that not all perpetrators are only male, but female aswell. This would benefits girls and boys as they view or read this because it shows that its time for us to open our eyes and see that no women and men are all included in causing sex trafficking. It relates specifically to our reading of Half the Sky because we see how sex trafficking appears multiple times in the stories of the young women who are trying to get rid of all the opression. Its time for us to first let the society know and start helping in making a difference. Sitting around and talking about how much it sucks wont get us anywhere, instead lets start a club and try to help these individuals that are suffering.
