The Tale of Desperaux is great example of modern fantasy|fairy tale. A hero, a princess, misunderstandings, challenges and rescues or at least an approximation of those things.
As with fairy tales, not everything is easy or goes well for the characters. Particularly there is a sad story of Miggery Sow (Gor! The Tale of Miggery Sow ). A young girl who witnesses the death of mother, and is sold into slavery by her father to a man who makes her work for him and beats (punches) her around the ears so regularly that within a year she is as good as deaf!
Unfortunately, the story of Miggery Sow isn’t far from the reality of that those who are the victims of human trafficking .
The fact is that this modern version of slavery and exploitation is a hidden aspect of many communities today.
However through The Stand 2010 at the Manchester Apollo on June 4th and the HopeforJustice organisation, there is a chance to make a difference and raise awareness that human trafficking should not be tolerated or allowed in our society.
