Lydia Cacho, Contributor

Lydia Cacho

Lydia Cacho received the International Women’s Media Foundation’s Courage in Journalism Award in 2007. Cacho is a Mexican journalist, author and activist who has written extensively about the rights of women and children, as well as about related social issues such as prostitution, human trafficking, child abuse and labor concerns, among other topics. Her published works include The Demons of Eden,” “Slaves to Power,” and, with co-author Elizabeth Boburg, “Slavery Inc: The Untold Story of International Sex Trafficking.” Her unjustified arrest in 2005, which Cacho believed was orchestrated for purposes of censorship and intimidation, sparked a legal case that went all the way to the Mexican Supreme Court, which ruled in her favor in 2007.
