"The slaves of the 21st century"

A year ago, a pimp handed me a quivering teenage girl. Her name was Srey Neth, and she was one of the hundreds of thousands of teenagers who are enslaved by the sex trafficking industry worldwide.

Then I did something dreadfully unjournalistic: I bought her.

From "Leaving the Brothel Behind", a beautiful piece by Nicholas Kristof in the New York Times.
