More from Nicholas Kristof
A follow up from his last column. It's worse than the first one, but again, it's crucial reading:
Pross was 13 and hadn’t even had her first period when a young woman kidnapped her and sold her to a brothel in Phnom Penh. The brothel owner, a woman as is typical, beat Pross and tortured her with electric current until finally the girl acquiesced.
She was kept locked deep inside the brothel, her hands tied behind her back at all times except when with customers.
Watch the video, too, if you can bear it, and take a moment to be grateful for how lucky we all are.
