Author of "Making Violence Sexy", "The Secret Trauma: Incest in the Lives of Girls and Women" which won the most prestigious award in sociology, and "Sexual Exploitation: Rape, Child Sexual Abuse, and Workplace Harassment". Diana speaks to us about a boycott compaign she is involved with against a restaurant owner who trafficks in young East Indian sexual slaves.
62 year old Mr. Bali Reddy, owner of the Pasand restaurant, was arrested after an east Indian girl died from carbon monoxide poisoning in Nov. of 1999. He had obtained Canti Prattipati and at least two other young girls from their poverty stricken parents, then falsified documents to smuggle them into the US where he used them as sex slaves and forced them to work in his restaurant, to clean and paint buildings he owned. He is currently free on 10 million dollars bail.
