In the literature Rabbit Ears by Maggie De Vries it’s shown that the theme of the book is prostitution. “Prostitution is the practice or occupation of engaging in sexual activity with someone for payment.” In the next paragraphs I will discuss an article and music that also deals with this topic.

Anne McClintock wrote her essay “Gonad the Barbarian and the Venus Flytrap: Portraying the female and male orgasm” to examine pornography and how it has changed throughout history and its effects on how women perform as sexual beings. McClintock focuses on the various roles of pornography such as its emphasis on voyeurism, pleasure, and the male ego. She wants her readers to know that women are still not represented in pornography to satisfy their own desires, but they are there to cater to men and their subconscious. I will analyze how McClintock argues that due to the history of sexism towards women, the roles that men and women have in pornography are inherently different because of the societal belief that women are only seen as objects of sexual desire and are solely there to satisfy the male audience.

Section 5 of the Act speaks about the procuring, taking and even inducing a person for the sake of prostitution. According to this section, even an attempt to procure and an attempt to take or cause a person to carry on prostitution amounts to trafficking. Therefore, human trafficking in this Act has been given a broad scope without any precise definition. According to the ITPA, 1956 trafficking in persons does not mean prostitution. Trafficking is the process of recruiting, contracting, procuring or hiring a person for commercial sexual exploitation.

Just because a woman goes against what their husband 's or anyone in their family believe to being incorrect should not justify them to becoming horribly disfigured. Similarily, further into the novel the Pross story resonated deep into my mind. According to Nicholas D. Kristof, one of the authors of Half the Sky, Pross was kidnapped at the “thirteen” (11) and sold to “a brothel in Cambodia.” When Pross wanted to fight back and escape her situation, the “female brothel owner” punished her by taking one of her eyeballs out with a “metal rod.” The heartbreaking story of Pross is one of the many ways the individuals at a brothel break “the spirits of the young girls” (10). Kristof explains that the way the brothel business is able to thrive is by using the methods of raping, threating, violence, and embarrassing them to use these young girls for their sick desires. Once the girls spirit is completely destroyed this allows the individuals running the brothel to control the girls to the fullest.
Lakshimi compares Mumtaz to a monster when she says “Only a monster can do what [Mumtaz] does to innocent girls,” (McCormick 231).The protagonist has been in the brothel the longest and she’s seen girls get kicked to fend for themselves or kill themselves, but she is “... afraid to imagine a life outside this place,” (McCormick 208). From the beginning she is told Americans that ask her if she wants to leave the brothel is a trap, and will take them to Mumtaz for a beating. Lakshimi ends up trusting an American and escapes exposing the brothel. Patricia McCormick was successful in her purpose of explaining to an American teenage audience how and why the cycle of human slavery present in the brothels exist. Like said in the book, women are compared to goats meaning women suffer the lack of power.
In the previous paragraph, we understand that the psychological problems trafficking causes can be just as devastating as the physical problems. When people discuss human trafficking, they often are confused as to why the victim didn’t just leave or tell someone. It is an accepted notion that majority of sexually exploited women have a degree of freedom; they are allowed to walk about the streets, allowed to contact “John’s”, and communicate with other women in the same business. However, what people often lack to understand the serious psychological grip that many traffickers have on their victims. In Theresa’s case, she had legitimate reason to believe that her family’s well-being would be in jeopardy if she refused to work or left the Chaldeans.
