In 1933, when Chinese teen Jeung Gwai Ying escaped forced prostitution in San Francisco, she fled to the Occidental Mission Home. Since 1874, the home had offered thousands of Chinese women refuge and the potential of a new life. In her book, "The White Devil's Daughters," Julia Flynn Siler chronicles the home and the people who passed through its halls. Siler joins Forum to discuss the often overlooked history of sex trafficking in San Francisco's Chinatown.
