012615 bright idea

A great idea can lead to a successful business. But it often takes a lot more than that. And it definitely takes more than a good idea to convince investors to take a chance on you.

A Sex Worker Tells Her Tale (Extra Scene from ‘Sex Slaves of Bangladesh’)

Bangladesh is one of the few Muslim nations where prostitution is legal, and the country’s largest brothel is called Daulatdia, where more than 1,500 women and girls sell sex to thousands of men every day. Daulatdia is infamous for drug abuse and underage prostitution, and many of its sex workers are victims of sexual slavery who were trafficked into the area and sold to a pimp or a madam. They are forced to work off the fee that was paid for them, a debt that takes years to clear because they receive as little as a dollar for sex. VICE News visited the notorious Bangladeshi brothel — where human trafficking, underage prostitution, and drugs are commonplace — and met the traffickers and the trafficked, as well as the clientele. In this extra scene, VICE News correspondent Tania Rashid hears a personal account of a sex worker who came to Bangladesh’s largest brothel with her two children, after leaving her abusive husband.
