The Audacious Ladies of La Gran Sorellanza

Hello to all my book loving Sisters

As an international human rights advisor specializing in women's rights violence/conflict, one of my main passions is Human Trafficking and in particular sex slavery. To help bring a fun and entertaining (and dutifully violent) awareness of this travesty to the everyday person, I wrote The Audacious Ladies of La Gran Sorellanza:

It was during the 1950's that the Italian mafia tyrant, Don Amato Riziso, determined it was time to get involved in the lucrative trade of human trafficking - sex slavery. Since there were no federal laws and ICE (Immigration Customs Enforcement) hadn't yet been created, those audacious Rizoso mafia wives decided they had to form their own group in order to rescue at least a few of the very victims their husbands were trafficking.

The book is available at amazon.com/KIndle Books

If you read it and enjoy it, I would very much appreciate your making a review of it both here and on amazon.com

Thanks Starland for sharing vluable information. Inspite of all the efforts this trade is growing. I think main cause is economics. anyhow we should hate it and continue our efforts to eradicate it through education and economic up lift.waqarazim@yahoo.com

I agree. And as far as the sex slavery goes, sure makes me wonder about the men lining up to use and abuse them. Over here, they are called "johns" I think it is time more men around the world step up big time for education and economic up lift.

Dear sister K-lee Starland,

Thank you so much for sharing your interesting information with us. In my country, Myanmar, human trafficking especially to children and women becomes an alarming issue. I am strongly interested to learn it in human rights perspecive as you point out especially for the international point of view as it's a cross-border problem, too.

Best, Insha Allah@Shwe Wutt Hmon

Thank you so much for your interest. Perhaps I can write a post addressing this issue from more of a human rights perspective. As mentioned above, economics too.

I fully agree with you. It's going to take all of us working together to end this travesty and restore dignity to each and every human being.
