"Bride" Trafficking: The New Face of Sex-Trafficking in India

They are buying, sharing and selling and reselling wives. Just like a commodity! See this report here http://genderbytes.wordpress.com/2012/04/14/brides-bought-sold-and-resol...

Hi Rita!

Thanks for sharing this. I read a lot on sex slavery and trafficking and I had no idea about this until I read your journal.

You are an amazing writer! I look forward to reading more of your stories on World Pulse.
