The darker side of Thailand's sex industry: trafficking underage girls

In Thailand's underage sex industry, the word "trafficking" as we know it in the West, doesn't get used much. The phrase "buying and selling" is more common. But however you describe it, the practice of taking underage girls from their homes in the north and forcing them into the sex industry in Chiang Mai (and beyond) hasn't gone away.

Sorry, your skirt is too long for France

Twitter lights up with reaction to the story of a Muslim schoolgirl in France who was sent home from school for wearing a long black skirt to class. School authorities, citing concern over France's secularity law, asked her to leave and come back with a more neutral outfit. See some creative photo-protests using the hashtag #JePorteMaJupeCommeJeVeux -"I wear my skirt as I please."
