I read this article a week or so ago (The Times had linked to it from their comment central blog) and it made me cry.
It reinforced my belief that people who say we can protect girls from sexual exploitation by bolstering their self esteem and teaching them self respect don't have the first idea about the size of the problem. Not that those things aren't respectable ends in themselves, but protecting women first and foremost means stopping men from abusing them.
What good would Nadine Dorries' abstinence classes have been to these poor women?
I think what shocked me most was how hard it was, and how long it took, to bring those evil men to justice. And it shows the necessity of a strong female presence in law enforcement - would it have happened if it wasn't for that female police officer?
