Our world is enriched when coders and marketers dazzle us with smartphones and tablets, but, by themselves, they are just slabs. It is the music, essays, entertainment and provocations that they access, spawned by the humanities, that animate them โ€” and us

Starting 2014 right: with some inspiration from the MUST SEE “Half the sky” documentary on #Netflix. Great motivation seeing 6 female celebs team with up with #nicholaskristof & #sherylwudunn to empower #women in countries all around the world. “When women progress, we all progress.” ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿ‘ฏ๐Ÿ™…๐ŸŒŽ๐ŸŽฅ #evamendes #americafererra #megryan #gabrielleunion #dianelane #oliviawilde #halfthesky #movement #girls #strength #womensrights #bestoftheday #love #education #documentary #instagood #health (at www.girltalkhq.com)

Global education is the key for Human Sex Trafficking prevention.

  1. Prosecuting women and children as prostitutes as criminals diminishes their ability to get out of the cycle. What about the johns, brothel owners and anyone else involved? Why aren’t the men who buy sex criminalized? Why not put their mug on a billboard? SHAME GAME.
  2. In order to keep children out of the sex slavery circuit and used as a commodity in this capitalist context the supply and demand is diminished when opportunities for youth and the poor are increased. An illiterate, poor and vulnerable child is statistically at risk for abuse and neglect.
  3. Sexual business economics: make the supply chain corrupt, boggle the logistics, make it economically unfeasible to operate and reduce the profit margin.ย 
  4. Naming and shaming countries who harbor predators, sexual tourism and create atmospheres for these industries to prosper.
  5. Consent Education from day 1 with our children
  6. Socializing men and boys to never accept buying another human being for sex or pleasure is okay.
