How horrific for these girls! And how appalling that, in the 21st century, slavery still flourishes -- although now it's mostly sex slavery of women.

These girls need a safe place to escape to -- some sanctuary where they won't be made to feel like damaged goods.

I'll look for Hazel Thompson's book.

Sometimes the cage is invisible, be it drug addiction, lack of papers, lack of education, danger to the family back home or even the so called 'laddette' culture where women are led to believe that exploiting themselves is an expression of freedom.
All those who take part in sleazy activities even 'just' chatting with cam girls or watching porn actually contribute to locking the prison door.

Sex trafficking in the same country where rape is a crime against women. This is absurd.
I will look for the book.

Horrific what some girls and women have to endure on our planet, and all is done to please some kind of macho men. Where is your conscience?
I dearly hope that all men who are taking advantage of those poor girls and women,have to be reborn as women again, and should endure the same plight.

Females do not fare well in India. Men everywhere have had power for far too long and it is out of control;. There are many nice men but this is disgusting and let's face it-they abuse their power every day. How awful for these girls-children who should be enjoying childhood not being victimized because of it.

Bad enough that this is done but that other women hold down the girl for her first rape. The article said they are not sure if the men know how the women are treated, I find that unlikely, I'm sure most of the men are aware of the horrific treatment of these women, they simply do not care.

This goes on and on in many Countries and I see little major effort by their Leadership to change or improve this for these impoverished girls. This is the cruel face of poverty.

The savagery these innocent little girls are forced to live in boggles my mind! How the hell does the goverment of India condone it? Yes India is condoning these inhumane sex slaves treatment! The goverment knows and does nothing, they are not only condoning this horrible criminal activity they are aiding and abetting the crime when they do NOTHING. We may? be better here in America but we do have some judges who are giving very short sentences and fines to pedophiles. We must also remove the 7 year statute of limitation for pedophiles. The damage done to the victims last a life time and most abused children do not even begin to deal with the emotional damage done to them until their late 20's or early 30's. that is a fact.

It is hard to imagine that there are people so unfeeling, so lacking of any kind of decency that they can perpetrate these unimaginable horrors. It should be mentioned though that this doesn't just happen to girls. This kind of treatment is also visited upon young boys. It would be unfair to portray this shocking human behaviour being focused only on females. The question we should ask is, why are the governments of countries where these practises are carried on and are flourishing, allowing this to continue????!!!!

Did I read this article wrong? The author writing the story for profit and not helping the victims. How sick is this.
The same girl the author uses is still in the cage, shame on the profiting author, sickening to me.
Then again, I am married to an Indian Lady for 40 years, we had our anniversary last week, I treat her with respect, so it should be. I am not the most romantic person in the world and we are total opposites. But Indian males are total losers!
