Stella Rotaru: Fighting Global Sex Trade

From Al Jazeera:

Stella Rotaru, with her International Organization for Migration, is fighting the international sex trade.

Stella is from Moldova, a former Soviet republic so poor that over one quarter of the population has emigrated. The country is a prime source for girls trafficked into prostitution.

Within a few years, Stella has become the "go to" person for many girls who have been tricked and sold into prostitution with the false promise of a job abroad - often in the Middle East.

As a young Moldovan herself from a similar background, the girls trust her.

This film tells the story of some of these girls and Stella's determination to help them.
