In Cambodia, girls as young as five are sold into prostitution every day. Somaly Mam was one such girl. Abandoned as a baby, Somaly was looked after by her grandmother until she disappeared. She was then taken into the care of a man she called 'grandfather', but was treated no better than an unpaid servant. Raped at twelve and forced to marry at fifteen, Somaly was then sold to a brothel. After years of abuse she managed to escape, and went on to co-found AFESIP to combat the sexual trafficking of young girls and women. Somaly Mam has become an international figure and won a Glamour magazine Woman of the Year award in 2006.
