            Born in 1940, Lillian Faderman is the only child of an uneducated and unmarried Jewish woman, who fled to America to escape the Nazis. Her mother's family perished in the Holocaust, and she was racked by guilt at having left them behind, suffering recurrent psychotic episodes. Th...e only relief she had from this, and her brutal sweatshop job, was loving Lilly. Lilly grows into Lil, a beautiful young woman who learns that her deepest erotic and emotional connections are with other women, and who finds herself in a dangerous but seductive world of addicts, pimps, and prostitutes. Desperately seeking to make her life meaningful, and to redeem her mother's suffering, she studies at University of California, Berkeley - paying her way by working as a burlesque stripper. At last she becomes Lillian, a brilliant student and the woman who becomes a loving partner, a devoted mother, an acclaimed writer and ground-breaking pioneer of gay and lesbian scholarship. Told with wrenching immediacy and great power, this is an extraordinary memoir: the nakedly honest story of an exceptional woman and her remarkable, unorthodox life.

            When people pick up this book, I suppose they'll be hoping for glossy and sexy. Here it is... You catch your eyes at your reflection in the mirror on the wall, in the lap-dance room. You see a face look back at you as you bring your arms around their shoulders, press the pink seq...uined fabric around your chest into their face. Who is that woman in the reflection? Two selves intertwine and it leaves you, in the dance room, making a decision that winged liner is now just for work. Because you don't know which self you are looking at right now, which person you are. The song stops and you break out of your trance and ask if he'd like to extend. Rita is an escort, one of the best in Australia. It all began on a whim at 18, after she rang the number on a sign looking for nude models. Estranged from her parents and always the outsider, she quickly learns the sex industry is comprised of many other people just like her. Rita becomes immersed in this world-the drugs, the late nights, the glamour, being an outcast, the attention and validation from men and, like a sponge, she soaks it all up. Mostly she thrives on how taboo her life has become. Her only stable relationships are with her two older siblings and when they both suicide, within eight months of each other, her life spirals. In this achingly honest memoir, Rita learns that death and trauma do not always bring grand transformative experiences. Sometimes in order to go forward, we have to write our own stories and choose to keep living. With its unflinching, compelling and darkly funny narrative, Come announces a fearless new talent in Australian writing.

            Even though this study was primarily on human traffi cking and prostitution among Edo women and girls of Edo state in Nigeria, human traffi cking, however, is a widespread, visible phenomenon in the world today. It is a global problem. A report from United Nations Offi ce on Drug... and Crime in 2014 says that human traffi cking involves over three million people in the world, bringing their slaveholders an annual profi t of 32 billion dollars. According to the same report, there is no place in the world where children, women, and men are safe from human traffi cking. In the background, the stark reality of poverty, unemployment, social marginalization, political crises, wars, interethnic confl icts, and the militarization of entire territories has increased the massive displacements of the population, fuelling the illegal sex trade linked to them. Many youngsters who desire to improve their living conditions and those of their families fl eeing their homes often become prey to criminal organizations who take advantage of them, exploit them, and dehumanize them. Little do they know when they are leaving their homes to go to overseas, what is waiting for them is often something altogether diff erent, namely intimidation, blackmail, violence, nightmare, and slavery that strip them of all dignity and respect. To make matters worse, most of the victims and their families not only lose credibility but are also ostracized by their local communities when what happened comes to light. Th erefore, the victims of this painful chain are not only young girls and boys but also families. Unfortunately, some parents, especially mothers, have also been perpetrators of this deplorable crime. Th ey push their daughters into the arms of their torturers, lulled by the dream of a brighter future. To stop and to prevent the reoccurence of this criminal network of complicity, which has been more or less voluntary, conscious and unconscious, a joint commitment by all governments, organization
