Full weekend, New York begins to implement all its preparations to receive Hurricane Irene, willing to let a violent mark on the city. Irene, the cyclone’s category between 1 and 2 plans to kiss New York today evening with rain and winds of up to 130 kilometers per hour, has caused an alarm situation unprecedented in a city that only has faced four times a hurricane of these features in the last 200 years. From this noon, New York has already been without public transport, which depends on an average of seven million people to move around the city.

What tells Zhang is also a daily reality for many families in the southern region of Yunnan, whose daughters are sent, by the impossibility of guaranteeing them a future, to places such as Hong Kong, Malaysia or, above all, Thailand. In addition to Beijing, you could go to Hong Kong, but there, although you can earn more money in any work, it is very dangerous, since you may be trapped by a visa problem, said Zhang. Sources of the Government of Hebei, advertisements of employment in the capital, denied the facts at the time who claimed that they have always worked with companies supervised officially and lawfully. However, the owner of the massage House where Li and Zhang were assured that it has never concealed anything nor forced anyone to work, so it was not fooling anyone, something that makes their inclusion in the bolsa de empleo hardly understandable. About age two years in place, the situation of both was increasingly more harrowing.
I lied to my parents telling them that I was happy but my only thought was to escape, says Li, who cannot avoid tears when Zhang tells how came out of there. A client, who believed that this was a normal place, had a strong argument with the owner and threatened him, and after one week, f uimos all dismissed. I found another job quickly thanks to a family member and soon could hire to Li.

There has been much on the situation of the latter, those who exercise their work in a voluntary way but have no legal protection of any kind. Wu Qing, feminist and delegate of the legislature in Beijing, said that the situation of women has improved a lot, although he regretted it really away from the equality that is the Asian country, which, He said, you should do something with prostitution. Currently no research on the subject.
We need to normalize prostitution seeing the experience of other countries to protect these women and achieve that before and at the time you have or want to abandon this way of life, are protected, said Wu. In this regard, the only response from the Chinese Government has been launch campaigns that have led to shame parades as of 2006 in Shenzhen, in the South, where hundreds of prostitutes were forced to parade dressed in correctional while a speaker gave their names and the charges of which they were accused. According to Wu, it is still much to do, something with which match Li and Zhang. The latter, by way of conclusion, regrets the day that chose that job offer because, she says, no matter the reasons that take you to do it, no one wants or deserves to live as well.
