"Qiao says the only way to effectively manage sex work in China is to legalise and monitor red light districts".... I totally agree. You are never going to stop this from happening. So to stop the exploitation it should be legalized and regulated. Take the criminals out of the game. If both parties are will participants then whats the problem?

I understand that rapes have gone up because there were fewer women to" marry" with the one child per couple policy and baby girls were usually killed. Now there is a use for the lesser desirable females. Great country we do trade with, huh?

people, including children, need to be educated on sexual abuse. perhaps if men empathize with these women, they will not want to take advantage of their situation.

The government has been trying to make China friendlier to women since Mao's revolution, but until the population's attitudes and culture change it's all for not. For every douchebag they put to death, 2 more will take his place.

Look it's simple blame the rich. They are usually the ones that go to places like these and they are one of the biggest reasons why children are sold into the sex trade. Losers from all types of professions like politicians, hollywood stars, sports stars and oil barons have been caught engaging in under age sex but there's still no laws to erase sex shops from operating in most asian countries.

And recently, they shut down 60,000 pornography websites. And sad thing is, those ladies will probably be sold into the sex slave industry also. When certain areas end up being dangerous to be a street walking prostitute, they will end up going else where, so it's more underground.

Please keep supporting April's Law, to help fight against the child sex abuse on and offline.
