The Road of Lost Innocence
by Somaly Mam
- 205 PAGES
Mam's remarkable story of triumph over years of sexual slavery in Southeast Asia gives voice to a human-rights disaster of global proportions. Written in exquisite, spare, unflinching prose, The Road of Lost Innocence recounts the experiences of her early life and tells the story of her awakening as an activist and her harrowing and brave fight against the powerful and corrupt forces that steal the lives of these girls. She has orchestrated raids on brothels and rescued sex workers, some as young as five and six; she has built shelters, started schools and founded an organization that has so far saved more than four thousand women and children in Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam and Laos.
