“Demi shared stories of working with an organization called Thorn (that works towards curbing circulation of child sexual abuse material and stands up to traffickers. I went to Sonagachi, the red light area in Kolkata, and lived there for a couple of days, studying the body language of the girls there. I also interacted with the organization called Apne Aap that helps such women and gets their children admitted into schools.”
