Read full description of the books:
Lydia Cacho is a symbol of courageous journalism. She has been defying the tradition of impunity for some years now, and demonstrating that communication media may not be so. This new book culminates her years of work on denouncing the systematic sexual violations of children and women, and the prostitution of children and women that constitutes the most lucrative form of slavery in our time, although it's not acknowledged that way. And Lydia goes beyond the frontiers of Mexico. Disguised with different attires, she travels from the Mexican undergrounds of the Merced market up to the Japanese night centers and brothels, going by many other knots of the immense spider's web of the Mafiosi, businessmen, policemen, judges and politicians that manipulate the global business. These are not neutral pages. Lydia listens, for them to be listened, to the voices of the victims, the broken lives, and accuses those who exercise the most abject form of property right, men who own women, adults who own children: those super machos manifest their despicable power by humiliating the weakest. Eduardo Galeano. Lydia Cacho es un simbolo del periodismo valiente. Ella lleva ya unos cuantos anos desafiando la tradicion de impunidad y demostrando que los medios de comunicacion pueden no ser miedos de comunicacion. Este nuevo libro culmina sus anos de trabajo en la denuncia de las sistematicas violaciones sexuales de ninos y mujeres, y de la prostitucion de ninos y mujeres que constituye la mas lucrativa esclavitud de nuestro tiempo, aunque no se llame asi. Y Lydia llega mas alla de las fronteras de Mexico. Ataviada con disfraces diversos, viaja desde los bajos fondos mexicanos de la Merced hasta los centros nocturnos y los prostibulos de Japon, pasando por muchos otros nudos de la inmensa telarana de mafiosos, empresarios, policias, jueces y politicos que manejan el negocio en el mundo.

Read information about the authorLydia Cacho was born in Mexico City in 1963 to a French mother and a Mexican father. She settled in Cancún, Mexico in 1985, where she began working at the newspaper Novedades de Cancún. Cacho speaks Spanish, French, Portuguese and English.
She is an award-winning Mexican journalist, author, feminist, and human rights activist who has published hundreds of news articles, a poetry book, a novel, collections of essays on human rights and other nonfiction works. She has made it her life’s work to investigate sexual slavery. For her work she has been kidnapped, raped, tortured and been the target of death threats.
A fearless and courageous defender of the rights of women and children in Mexico, Cacho routinely risks her life to shelter women from abuse and challenge powerful government and business leaders who profit from child prostitution and pornography. Cacho is the founder of Ciam Cancún, a shelter for battered women and children. Her work with women and children in Mexico has been extremely effective in terms of rescue and rehabilitation of the countless individuals who seek assistance from the shelter.
She was the first woman to bring a case before Mexico’s Supreme Court following her imprisonment on defamation charges after the publication of her book, Demons of Eden, in which she investigates child sexual abuse and pedophilia rings. Amnesty International has recognised her work.
