characters Esclavas del Poder characters Esclavas del Poder è PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Lydia Cacho ☆ 5 characters Illegal inhuman and impervious to recession there is one trade that continues to thrive just out of sight The international sex trade criss crosses the entire globe a sinister network made up of criminal masterminds local handlers corrupt policemen willfully blind politicians eager consumers and countless hapless women and children In this ground breaking work of investigative reporti. 1 This is a very difficult book for me to rate It covers such a critical issue and I do not want a low rating from me or a lowered overall rating for the book to dissuade any potential reader who is unaware of this hidden problem from reading it Let me say first of all that I do not doubt the existence of this problem nor the dedication and steadfastness of the author in uncovering its extent and in trying to be the catalyst for meaningful change Cacho was previously jailed and tortured in prison in Mexico after exposing a huge child pornography ring in her earlier book Demons of Eden which I have not read don t think there s an English translation2 As a work of investigate journalism however this book freuently left me frustrated There is a distinct lack of references and empirical data and as a result oftentimes it is difficult to differentiate between evidence based logically argued fact and personal opinion Granted the murky and dangerous environment in which the subject matter thrives involving crooked politicians corrupt cops and violent underworld elements makes information gathering extremely difficult and even life threatening but I still wonder if research could not have been done The book itself is also not structured very well and often feels like a mish mash of personal observations Given the gravity of the topic I really do hope the author or even other journalists might contribute to this body of work in the future3 Despite its shortcomings if you are lucky enough to be living in a relatively well off country and are blissfully unaware of the existence of such horrors this book would still serve as a useful wake up call In one section of the book Cacho describes her interview with a 9 year old Cambodian girl in a shelter who has been rescued Their conversation is carried out through an interpreter as the little girl speaks no English While they are talking she is watching her friends at the shelter play around in a small plastic pool Suddenly she says to one of them That s it baby girl Good job in what Cacho describes as a perfect American accent Ponder on that sentence for a moment if you will

I found reading this book really disturbing but also really worthwhile I didn t realise sexual slavery was so widespread throughout the world and so insidious Cacho exposed herself to enormous personal risk while carrying out research for this book and then writing and publishing it She seems to me to present the topic in a very thorough and balanced way and I highly recommend the bookOne thing I found particularly suspicious is the way in which one of the people Cacho mentions Somali Mam has been publicly discredited since the book was published in 2010 In the book Somali is described as being someone who works day and night with one mission in mind to abolish female sexual slaveryShe was sold in Cambodia and exploited in a brothel for several years she escaped after witnessing the murder of her best friend another girl prostitute by a trafficker She overcame this horrifying experience and made it her life s mission to save Asian girls from sexual exploitation and to eliminate trafficking in the world p 67 68 Somali Mam has appeared on the front of magazines such as Newsweek and received many awards She has been feted by Hollywood stars and world leaders attended gala dinners with the ueen of Sweden the king and ueen of Spain and has been photographed with other world famous figures including Nobel prize winners At one stage she was named among Time magazine s 100 most influential people and was a CNN hero and she has also been feted at charity events in Australia Since 2014 however since Slavery Inc was published many stories have been written that discredit Somali Mam and try to vastly downplay the extent of sexual exploitation of women and young girls taking place in Cambodia in particular A Newsweek article published on 21 May 2014 states that In an interview for Euronews in 2012 Mam said girls as young as 3 are being held in Cambodian brothels Experts in the field say that is almost unheard of Patrick Stayton who formerly ran the Christian faith based International Justice Mission IJM in Cambodia says They may have had a supply of younger girls between the age of 14 and 17 but adds We ve never seen prepubescent girls or very very rarely After reading Slavery Inc though I would err on the side of believing what Mam said

characters Esclavas del Poder characters Esclavas del Poder è PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Lydia Cacho ☆ 5 characters Ng the celebrated journalist Lydia Cacho follows the trail of the traffickers and their victims from Mexico to Turkey Thailand to Ira Georgia to the UK to expose the trade's hidden links with the tourist industry internet pornography drugs and arms smuggling the selling of body organs money laundering and even terrorismThis is an underground economy in which a sex slave can be bought. This is not an easy read but it s an important one Lydia Cacho is an immensely brave and strong journalist who has worked hard to understand how the sex trafficking industries function all over the world If you don t feel like you have the stomach to make it through her book do yourself a favor and watch an interview with her She s an inspiring woman who manages to maintain hope in the fact of all of the horrors that she writes about Reading this at the same time as reading David Rock s History of Argentina was very interesting for me The history of South America is one in which labor was the key to everything hence slavery The colonizers wanted money from what Silver How to get it Mine it But how to make a profit Use cheap labor and the cheapest of all is slavesThere are direct parallels with the sex industry Someone is always making a profit off of the work of someone else s body If there wasn t money at the end of it then there would be power Cacho calls not only for political action against sex trafficking but also a transformation of masculinity which of course also inherently means a transformation of femininity as well We have to fight against the normalization of the eroticization of people s bodies and we have to fight against the normalization of sexual violence and gender euality in all societies She calls not only for sex education but also love education for every human being has the right to love and be loved and to have enjoyable consensual sex Cacho travels all over the world to document the abuses of women men and children at the hands of sex traffickers corrupt police corrupt governments and the many mafias This book feels like it was the short version of what could have been 1000 pages of stories and accounts She has an excellent analysis of the negative effects of postmodern feminist liberal thinking and her conclusions chapter includes a very compelling argument against the legalization of sex work Some of the uotes that I marked while reading are as followsFrom the section on Cambodia Foreign families who want to give them a second chance occasionally adopt some of the youngest girls legally but it s not an easy task Whoever adopts them needs to understand that transforming the girls views of themselves women sexuality and their relationships with men will be a life long mission Otherwise the girls fail to adjust they escape from their new homes and return to the familiar world of prostitution where the rules are clear everyone lies take what you can get Love and patience is not enough says Claudia Fronjosa p 66It is globalization s Achilles heel the ineuality of cultures economies and legal systems as well as the disparity in intervention capabilities among countries and regions make it practically impossible to follow cases such as those presented here no matter how well documented they are Political will or its absence is a key factor in understanding why human slavery has remained a horrific issue focusing on isolated cases makes it seem like a criminal phenomenon a complex conundrum of disparate individual stories exaggerated by the fevered imaginations of NGOS p90The author Diego Gambetta explains that the mafia uses violence as a means and not an end contrary to what the police have had us believe for years The general view is that the mafia deals in violence Gambetta refutes this perception and argues that protection is in fact what the mafia is selling on different levels Violence to a greater or lesser degree is a tool that allows the effective delivery of protection whether for a local trafficker who wants to ensure the safe transfer of his slaves from the airport to his bar p 146Regarding the idea that prostitution should be legalized because sex work should be seen as a viable choice like any other job and sex workers should have the freedom to express themselves Catherine MacKinnon responds to this argument She notes that in the past the women s movement understood that the choice to be beaten by one man for economic survival was not a real choice despite the appearance of consent a marriage contract might provide Yet now we are supposed to believe in the name of feminism that the choice to be sexually used by hundreds of men for economic survival must be affirmed as a real choice and if the woman signs a contract to be a model there is no coercion there p 236Lydia Cacho is definitely one of my heroes My only ualms with this book was as other readers have mentioned the writing could definitely use some improvement Also I wish that she would also talk about the sex trafficking and sexual abuse of males as well Maybe that s too much to fit into this one book but I wish she would have addressed the issue in some way even to say why she didn t focus on it
