Speaking of raising consciousness, Ukraine's female pop icon Ruslana is using her celebrity for a very good cause.
A big "Brava" to her for putting out this video and raising awareness of the scourge of human trafficking.
Human trafficking, especially for purposes of sexual exploitation, is one of the few remaining "taboo" topics in today's society.
Perhaps that's because it so clearly illustrates the barbarity of contemporary society ... and the reality that despite being more liberal, we are not really as advanced a society as we may like to think.
