Short Description: 
Author & teacher Stuart Perrin interviewed on trafficking women, and what's being done to stop it.

Trafficking women and girls into sexual slavery is a global nightmare.  Over half a million women are sold across international borders, the vast majority of them are sold into sexual slavery.  This happens the world over, and the US is no exception.

Stuart Perrin was working in Nepal when he became acutely aware of this issue.  In response he started The Bahini Foundation, and created a safe place for girls escaping trafficking in Nepal.  

Stuart has re-established The Bahini Foundation in Oregon, and is continuing to find ways to educate the public on the horrors faced by girls sold into sexual exploitation.  He has written the novel Little Sisters based on his work in this area.

Violence Against Sex Workers
William Madden, Rogelio Guangelista, Eric Garcia

Violence against sex-workers happens daily and often goes unreported and unaddressed. Due to the nature of the profession, the growing population of sex-workers in Portland is forced to live outside the
everyday awareness of most residents. Because a blind eye is often turned towards this population it is difficult to provide care for survivors of violence and to prevent future attacks. This segment
highlights the Sex-Worker Outreach Coalition (SWOC) and Portland’s Bad
Date Line.
