the face of slavery

The New York Times has a stunning, shocking video opinion piece by Nicholas D. Kristof, where he interviews Long Pross, a young Cambodian woman who was forced into sexual slavery. Her story, unfortunately, is a common one: The Face of Slavery.

The sex trade and human trafficking is alive and kicking -- still an ugly reality around the world. At the end of the piece, Kristof calls upon Barack Obama with hope that his administration will take steps to directly address this very real 21st century problem. For what it's worth, I hope so too.
