When Chicago prosecutor, Clifford Roe, wrote this book in 1910, he probably never dreamed that a century later, the stories in it would all still be tragically relevant. Human trafficking is a worldwide problem not confined to any ethnicity or socio-economic status.
If it’s easier for people to read stories from long ago, let them read the women’s stories here. Just know that they are stories still being enacted and told by women in your community today.
Clifford Roe worked tirelessly, obtaining over 150 convictions in Chicago and he’s to be commended for trying to make the problem more visible. All of us must take up the cause to help eradicate this scourge in our day.
