Sadly, she is abused by multiple offenders, such as her uncle, her employer, a classmate, and most importantly, her own father. Although her father does not molest her, he exploits her in other revealing ways. Sexual exploitation is when a child is sexually abused so their parent/caregiver may gain something in return (Schwartz-Kennedy, Beth M., et al 3). On one occasion in the book, Jeannette is exploited when her father is drunk at a bar, and he hands her over to another man to do whatever he wants to her (Walls 212-213).

And although his cases do lead him to suspect the man who committed the atrocity against Geraldine, the tribal justice system is unable to take any action. Before the assualt, Geraldine remembers a sack being drawn over her head and shoulders that “went down so far… [she] couldn’t see” (159), and because of this visual block, as well as her disorientation and panic during the event, she is unable to provide the location in which the rape occurred; this opens her case up to the confusing and often ineffective system of state, federal, and tribal land

Like a rat placed inside a maze to be examined by a scientist, the cast members of the reality T.V show “Bad Girls Club” are placed in a house to be examined as a psychological experiment.
