Judd: Gender inequality key in trafficking fight

Actress and human rights activist Ashley Judd spoke Thursday at the United Nations

She has spent years traveling the globe - from Congo to Cambodia - fighting against human trafficking.

After appearing at the UN, she chatted with CNN's Richard Roth to explain how gender equality was one of the root causes contributing to the world's unrest. She also pointed to some successes in the fight against trafficking.

    So often celebrities get involved with causes and know very little about the cause. When I saw Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher get involved it was hard to think these people were absolutely the worst people you could find for such a serious issue. Judd however is an excellent choice. Unlike many celebrities she is careful with her words, and I would guess the fact that she knows who Shively is, also educated herself on the issue. Lets face it, most celebrities are not going to sift through 300 page papers on the demand aspect of trafficking. Excellent job by Judd. That said, a male voice would also help. I think she should try to wrangle Liam Neeson into the cause as well. His movie about trafficking makes the public familiar with him on the issue. While I am throwing suggestions out there, get Steven Spielberg to tie the issue into the promotion of his Lincoln film later this year. The 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation ties into the issue quite well. Keep up the good work over there at CNN. Tough to stick with an issue that many want to pretend does not exist.
