On the surface, Tenancingo looks like any other small Mexican city. But Tenancingo has a secret industry which is both hidden and known by many -- the forced prostitution of women, which has kept the town alive for three generations.

Noted Thank you Martha. This is really dreadful. What hope is there for the children if the Authorities don't intervine.

I had heard about this on NPR some time back. I'm not sure what can be done about it though. It's not just the men who are profiting from it though. Older women are forcing their own daughters into the trade out of desperation too.
