just....wow....i don't know what to even say to this....

i cannot wrap my head around the low life form mentality that could conceive of such things, let alone act upon them.

There should be laws that would put anyone away in prison for life that is involved in human trafficking (not the victims) but all those that partake in this human suffering. It has to stop these peple who can do this to women children men anyone should not ever be allowed out into the world of freedom again it's to horrible to even imagine and to think right now someone is being raped all day and locked up there has to be a way to stop this to scare these cowards into finding another way to exist and they don't know anything about llife this campaign is good but it has to be a serious crime and scare the hell out of anyone thinking or doing it

This is an horrendous problem especially now Eastern Europe has free access to the West. An example is when the World Cup was being held in Germany, there were booths all around the grounds filled with prostitutes from Eastern Europe!

It will be difficult to stop as this is a very good way of money laundering and is somewhere around the income of drugs.

I hope that this will bring attention to the world as well as Israel and hope and pray that the trafficking is stopped one way or another.

No comment! Some neocon wouldn't understand and would accuse me of being an anti-Semite. This is despicable I don't care where it happens, despicable. Go after the traffickers They are the ones profiting from this!

It's about time the real criminals paid for their crime. This is a very good development for the unsuspecting women who are duped and forced into prostitution by traders promising good jobs abroad. Thank goodness this is finally being addressed.

At last..a very eye catching campaigne..wished it could take off to all the Big Label Stores where a lot of young women shop. They have to be made to be aware that this could happen to them. The younger children have to be watched by parents or guardians so carefully now. It is so appauling that this form of slavery has been happening for such a long time and police around the world can't seem to get ahead of these guys. OK we all know there is a certain amount of graft also. These people running the organizations need to be put behind bars forever!

Sometimes it pays to shock people into seeing what we try to ignore.
Trafficing of women is abusive, violent and a crime.
If this helps to stem the flow of this vile crime
then I am all for it.
Any link to the petition?

This is no different than what they do in holland.They have prostitutes that stand in window displays waiting for the next john to have sex with.They also pay taxes.This though is the last straw in how women are still being degraded and thought of as nothing more than a bed partner and slave to their children.Oh when will women be put on a pedestal and cherished and valued by the male population.

I misread what was said.I had assumed that this was actually an accepted part of their society.I root them for that action.Not sure it will have a huge impact though.

Can you imagine what an impact here in America if just a few stores here did the same thing? We see pink ribbons for the cause everywhere, now we need to go out on a limb and bring sex trade awareness to the public. Are there any designers, any companies up for the challenge? It would be quite a switch from selling everything using sex. Maybe if awareness and anger is stirred up, investigations would be called for and we would really find out what has happened to the missing children on milk cartons.

How can there be so many low-life subhumans to support this horrendous sex trade? It boggles the mind.

An innovative approach, but why is nobody talking about educating boys so they don't continue the demand for / consumption of prostitution? Of course the penalties for trafficking and the abuse that comes with out should be made very severe.

This is an ever growing horrific way of life for many women and for children too. The more light that is shed on this may stop the "red light" districts or at least make more people aware of how large this problem is.

thanx Anna, a very creative way to show the public the problem, hopefully it will catch on around the world.Ladies with all do Respect, if you wouldn't wear tight, revealing, sexy clothing it might help us Men to not get so excited. I like the clothes my mother and other women wore in the 1950' & 60's.

A very real problem that must be addressed...and I do agree...Sometimes people need to be shocked to get the message across.

ChanTlalok...I'm certain that most men, as easily tempted as they can be, do have a moral compass that would lead them away from such...nefarious...activities..., right...?

Ladies, all I can say is this...Respect yourselves...

Thanks, Anna...Compelling article....

Quite shocking, sometimes that is just what is needed to get the proper amount of attention to an issue. I hope this works and prostitution and human sex trafficking are reduced and eventaully cease altogether!

new slavery !!
So sorry for those women, I wonder where are the womens rights organisations, to let that to happen?
I suggest to start a petition to help those innocent women.

Thanks Anna for posting.
