"Excellent writing. Spot on. Made me feel something.....not really sure what I felt, to be frank. Anger, disbelief, regret, sadness, powerlessness. Talking about the sex industry, strip clubs, prostitution, human trafficking, porn. All the same thing. Smiles on the women's faces, knowing that they were dying inside. Just trying to survive, just one more day. It got me, it got too me. The rights that males are given that we as women are not. It opened up my eyes even more than they are already open and trust me, my eyes are open. It was a bloody good book. I think every single woman on this planet should read it. Privileged or not, tough read or not, they are still living in a mans world, we as women are screwed. We as women need to see it too. So maybe as a whole, we women can change it"

I became familiar with Jacqueline's work about a year ago. In her brilliance she is able to take complex stratified layers of social injustices and minimize it to one phrase that is always powerful, simple and easy to understand. She can take extremely complicated theories and boil it down for people like myself who don't have her voice and instinct for cutting through the bull. I heard her interview and shifted through much of her work. I wish more people realized how economic slavery of women directly contributes to the sexual enslavement of women and children. By turning our backs, we allow our most vulnerable to be at increased risk of rape and prostitution. I like her no nonsense and unapologetic approach to social justice.

I have talked to the author on facebook she is very down to earth, kind and intelligent. Her struggles are heart breaking and it goes to show how close we all really are to prostitution. She is dirt poor and published and self published this book but never the less it is professional and profoundly impacting. It just might change your views on women as a class forever.
