The Sex Slave Rescuer

2010 NY Summit

March 14, 2010 — How do you save someone who doesnt think they need saving? Thats the quandary Sunitha Krishnan, a sex-slavery activist, discussed in Saturdays Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery panel for the Women in the World summit. Krishnan spoke of the difficulty in distinguishing those who have willingly entered the sex industry versus those who were forced into it, saying the women and children they go to rescue from sexually abusive situations are already so normalized to the exploitative practices that they often resist rescue.
