‘A unique and powerful vehicle’

There are moments when journalists feel so powerless. We witness so many injustices, and there’s nothing we can do. This happened to Sean Williams while reporting in Palermo, Italy, for this issue. A local fixer took him to a brothel to verify the existence of sex slavery in the city. There were the rooms. There was the madam, selling drugs and greeting johns. There, just out of sight, were the victims. And there was nothing he could do to make it stop.
