Australia, not so good for prostituted children

A child sex trafficking ring has been uncovered in Sydney, with a 19 year old woman arrested and her 22 year old sister rearrested (after already being accused of charging men money to engage in sexual acts with two young girls, 12 and 13 years of age). With another five girls believed to be involved between the ages of 12 and 16.

Police believe this operation has been running for a minimum of two years, with Liverpool Local Area commander Ray King, a police officer for a long time, saying he has never been so disgusted over what detectives have uncovered.

“These are children that have been abused and manipulated,” Superintendent King told reporters on Thursday.

“We don’t know how they will be in 20 years. It’s quite traumatic.”

Some of these girls would have been vulnerable and living on the streets

The younger sister is expected to be charged along with 3 male ‘customers’.

This is a worldwide travesty against our children, young teen girls and women, this has to stop!

We are supposed to be the lucky country, yet these kids are far from lucky. This trade of girls’ and women’s bodies and souls has to stop, everywhere. These are human beings. As a collective we need to start healing women instead of destroying us. As a collective we need to take a good look at this society’s overt sexualisation of women and girls and see where it is getting us. We live in the 21st century, we are supposed to be civilised. And as a society we need to listen to these women and girls, we need to hear them and do what we can.

  1. Reblogged this on Global Sisters Group and commented:
    Thank you so much Lily for posting this. You are so right – we are supposed to be civilized yet we are still living in world with people who feed off of human vulnerabilities and inequalities… but we cannot lose hope. You are right, we need to do what we can to help. I’m with you!

    1. Thanks so much for reblogginh this, the case went to court today and heard the sisters preyed on these homeless girls and introduced them to drugs to then force them into prostition, telling them if they didn’t do it they’d be back on the streets. They lured one 12 year old girl from a refuge, making her fearful with talk of accessing firearms and being associated with bikies.
      It is vile and despicable to prey on vulnerable children and women like this. But people like us will keep shining lights on this so that these women and children aren’t forgotten and can hopefully find an escape and reprieve from such atrocities, so the healing may begin, though the traumatic scars will always remain. Thank you again Global Sisters for all your fantastic work on the plight for safety and decency for women everywhere. Many Blesings

  2. Thank you for the update on this case! It’s comforting to know those sisters have been caught… terrifying to think that there are probably a countless number of unknown cases all over the world like this. I hope that the victims get all the needed resources for proper rehabilitation.
