A Must-See TED TALK: Sunitha Krishnan Speaks On Rescuing Victims of Sex Trafficking in India

“The sense that thousands and millions of children and young people are being sexually violated and that there’s this huge silence about it around me angers me.”  -S.Krishnan

sunita krishnanMy brother-in-law recently sent us the link to this fantastic TED talk by Sunitha Krishnan, a woman who passionately fights on behalf of sex trafficking victims in India.  When this talk was filmed (2009), Krishnan had rescued more than 3,200 victims.  Hear about how her own experiences led her to do this work, what her biggest frustrations are, and what consequences she personally has to live with as a result of coming face-to-face with traffickers. Warning: contains some graphic images

I’m pretty sure this woman has just made my hero list!  What stood out to you during her talk?
