Founder of Sacculturalhub.com, Pleshette Robertson, states: “I am currently reading the book, “Half The Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide” and I find myself wondering how could this be right here in the United States, in China, India (and other countries) that there are literally hundreds of thousands of young innocent girls (for centuries) trapped in horrific brothels undergoing unfathomable and intentional pain of brutal violence and sex enslavement. And, even if these girls are somehow rescued, the hard part is hoping that you can help them not falter back into prostitution/human sex trafficking due to drug addiction and the need to make money to support their families.”  If you have not read the book, it is worth going out to the bookstore or ordering online today to begin learning about the oppression of women around the globe and the ongoing fight to end global poverty with an emphasis on educating and introducing girls/women to opportunities so they can escape the life of prostitution and human sex trafficking.
