The work of the character Christine in the play Red Light Winter by Adam Rapp symbolizes the act of prostitution as a way to embrace one's own self; she owns her body, therefore, it’s her right to use it. Throughout the play, Christine uses her body as a way to gain control over other characters and uses it to survive in the world all by herself. In most general cases, a woman chooses to be a prostitute when she finds out it that her own self could be used to earn her own living and that it’s one of her option to survive in this world. For Christine, getting separated from her parents and living abroad without having the proper education to find a job since she “quiet school” at an early age could be a reason she drove herself into prostitution (Rapp, 71).
Prostitution, a colossal industry that dates back to 18th century B.C, spans across all nationalities and socioeconomic classes, yet its mass criminalization and lack of regulation forces workers into hazardous conditions and perpetuates the violation of fundamental human rights. In Lucinda Ramberg’s “Given to the Goddess,” the intertwining relationship of religion and prostitution is evaluated through Ramberg’s analysis of the social roles of devadasis, or servants of god. Devadasis begin as children within lower castes whose parents, seeking either to preserve familial lineage or avoid possible afflictions imposed by the gods, dedicate the children into a celestial marriage through which they are mortally bound to a god.

The United States abolished slavery in 1865, the 13th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states, "neither slavery nor involuntary servitude...shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction" (The United States Constitution). We never thought that over one-hundred years later there would be a new form of slavery that has affected so many people around the globe.

Most human trafficking victims are forced into the trade by the false promises made regarding job opportunities. Many women from third world countries are lured into this trade with the bait of false marriages or false jobs.

According to this theory, the audience create a world of ideas and mental content which is analogous thereby, generating a bias towards reality as per the content displayed.

How can that be possible though, if absolute equivalence between two different languages and more specifically two different worlds is a remote possibility? There are slim chances in achieving the perfect translation, and the only way a translation can be described as a successful one, it is when it constitutes a real encounter between the home and the foreign, the self and the other.

A child's sense of self is greatly dependent on how others think, feel and behave towards her. This fundamental difference in identity formation between the sexes has deep roots in socialization processes, resource allocation within families, the impact of external influences such as mass media, pornography, and of course the educational system.
