Sex Slaves

The terrible tragedy of sex slavery is thankfully starting to get more attention in the media. In recent weeks, Nicholas D. Kristof has written important columns for the op-ed pages of the New York Times about the international scope of the issue. In today's Charlotte Observer, Franco Ordonez localizes the story by showing how immigrant Latino women are being kept as sex slaves in brothels in Charlotte and around the state. I like how the end of his story, "Sex Rings Prey on Immigrant Women," offers tips for readers to recognize when a home might be housing a secret brothel and gives victims a hot line number they can call.
