She Escaped Sexual Exploitation in Mexico and Is Now Working to Help Other Victims

Rome Reports
go to original
June 3, 2016





It has been four years since Madai Morales was taken from her home in Veracruz, Mexico. Today, she and her mentor, Human Rights Activist Rosi Orozco are attending the Summit of judges on human trafficking and organized crime that takes place at the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences in the Vatican.

Unfortunately, Madai's story is not dissimilar to other victims of sex trafficking. Her captor was charming, nice and seemed to have strong family values. But that all changed when he took her to live with him in Mexico City. There she endured beatings, assaults and harassment. She was forced to go into prostitution by the very man she thought cared for her.

The year 2012 proved to be a symbolic one for Madai. That was the year she escaped from her bleak reality and crossed paths with Rosi Orozco. Rosi is the President of the Commission United Against Human Trafficking. She was the driving force in overcoming strong resistance and winning passage of 2012 law to combat human trafficking throughout Mexico.

Today, four years later, Madai Molares sees Rosi as not just a mentor, but as a colleague that stands besides her in the fight against Human Trafficking. Molares is going to graduated from law school this December, as she hopes to use her skills in law as a tool to help, empower and encourage women going through what she went through. She is currently working for Mexico City's Supreme Court and will soon be featured as one of Forbes Magazine's most influential woman.
