It begins with silence: Powerful TED talk by Sunitha Krishnan

I came across a very powerful TED talk by a social worker Dr. Sunitha Krishnan. She is genuine and passionate in her efforts against human trafficking and the sex trade. Sunitha believes that our silence can enable abuse.  Sunitha’s talk is a powerful message to society. I admire her courage and guts to address the social stigma in our society. It is one of the most moving and humbling speeches I have heard/watched recently. The topic is not unique to any particular country.  I also found the Q&A at  TED blog very thought provoking.

It is a coincidence that I am currently reading Nicholas Kristof’s & Sheryl WuDunn’s book “Half the Sky.” The first few chapters dwells on the same topic that Sunitha talks about. I will write a review when I finish the book.
