Family photographs don’t even begin to tell Minh Dang’s life story. Behind the brown eyes of a little girl are unseen horrors, horrors that she says happened at the hands of the two people who should have protected her from unspeakable acts.Her parents.

“They were really partners in the crime,” Dang said.

After years of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, Dang sais her mother and father teamed up to sell her for sex—starting at age 10.

“They actually recruited people, so my mom placed ads in Vietnamese newspapers and magazines,” Dang recalled.  “My dad took me to these businesses, they were cafes, and they were fronts for brothels. He would take me to brothels and leave me there for weeks on end, and brothels sell children for sex so that was my job while I was there.”
