Thanks for taking up this burning issue in my country, dear Lindsey. Women in most Indian households are supposed to be subservient to the males and that perhaps is the root cause why men continue to exploit women in India.

I have personally known at least two of women who could not face up to the aftermath of such type of exploitations they were subjected to and finally ended their own lives at a very young age. Another girl barely twenty who was mentally challenged was lured into a park behind the milk booth where she went daily to fetch milk with her brother, raped and murdered but the culprits were never tracked down. Its high time to bring in legislation with stringent punishment to stop such things from happening.

Signed with pride. Women and children are HUMANS they are not sex toys. We need stricter law in full force to put this to a stop worldwide. Women have rights just as men do and they deserve respect.

The only way to deal with this is to take positive moves to reduce poverty. As long as people live so close to the edge and desperation the last choice anyone wants to make will still exist.

Signed and noted! Sex traffickers of women, and especially children, are the scum of the earth. If there wasn't a market for sex slaves, there would be no trafficking. The problem requires a two-prong approach. I hope the traffickers AND the customers are hunted down, prosecuted and incarcerated for the rest of their lives. They need to pay for the lives they waste and the misery they cause.
