    What an amazing thing to see these women fighting for those who have no voice... As a student myself involved in the issue, I find this very encouraging. If anyone is interested in getting involved as a student and perhaps starting an organization at their school, please send me an email at onevoiceatl@gmail.com

    And congrats Willow on your video world premiere last night!

      They have no voice because they don't exist. Human trafficking exists on a far far smaller scale than estimated. Most of the "victims" are women over 18 who chose this profession. Women want to do what they want with their bodies unless it's other women doing with their bodies what they don't want them to do.

    Hey America you need to look at your back yard ,Before you say you are doing things to stop human trafficking . Have a look at Carnival Cruises out of Miami. No Taxes and they employ people from third world counties to do all the work and pay them zip . Shame on you and the way you think you are doing some thing to help , Your not you are as bad as the rest of them . You should be ashamed . So start fixing your own problems before you make out you are doing the right thing . CNN you are full of it . its just air time for your company . shame

    When males finally realize an accept that women are not only the superior gender but that they are far superior to us males, maybe women can get the respect they deserve. Every male should be taught in grade school that women are superior and every girl should embrace it. Women should be in control of every aspect of society and they should be in control of every male.
