POWER OF WOMEN
Pamala Kennedy Chestnut’s More Than Rice is a moving testament to the power of women to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds and the conditions of abusively patriarchal societies and practices.
Finally from Pamala: I’m going to a large and influential country by invitation of their President to talk about the problem of human trafficking. Thank you for your prayers for me as I undertake this awesome endeavor.

Author Raises Awareness of Problem in More Than Rice
Tune in to Day Break Tulsa Monday January 10th to hear Pamala Kennedy Chestnut, author of More Than Rice.com talk about her new book and Global Human Trafficking Awareness Day in Tulsa.
Fox 23 has covered the issue of human trafficking a lot in the past year and may continue to cover it more and more as the issue becomes more clear to Oklahomans. Fox 23 is quickly becoming the leader for local news in Tulsa http://www.m3newmedia.net/tulsa-news-channel-uses-social-media-to-stay-connected-with-viewers
Tulsa takes part in Global Human Trafficking Awareness Day Jan 11th-Presidential Declaration.
Tulsa, Oklahoma (December 4, 2010) — Imagine, just for a moment, the horror and terror you would feel if you were suddenly snatched from the life you knew. Imagine being shipped aboard a cargo ship and forced to work in brothels in a distant city or country. Imagine how you would feel if this happened to a sister or your child.
Pamala Chestnut’s new book, More Than Rice from M3 Publishing, tells a human trafficking story with remarkable detail.
As Chestnut explains, the human trafficking industry exploits a new victim every 30 seconds. The majority of victims are women and children. According to the CIA, the profits from a single trafficked person can total $250,000.
Human trafficking has been in the news recently, making Kennedy-Chestnut’s foray into this terrifying world all the more timely. In mid-November, the United States highlighted major shortcomings in Malaysia’s attempts to crack down and stop this illegal activity. As it happens Malaysia is the setting for Pamala’s new book.
In More than Rice, the author introduces us to a 17-year-old teen named Gabriela who is kidnapped in Manila. Over time, she transforms from a selfish, self-absorbed teenager to a fearless leader of a group of victims. She finds her true mission is to give love, freedom and hope to the girls who find themselves in a constant nightmare.
At the end of the book, Chestnut offers simple and tangible ways your audience can become aware of human trafficking and help apply pressure to stop it forever.
Pamala Kennedy Chestnut is available for interviews to talk about her book, about her research into human trafficking and, importantly, the steps your audience can take to apply pressure to governments where human trafficking persists.

Extreme Times Call For Extreme Measures-Or on the Road With Pamala What do you get when you introduce a Social Injustice called Human Trafficking to a praying Mom and Grandmother? You get former Mrs. California and Nationally recognized Author and Novelist Pamala Kennedy Chestnut to bring us face to face with human trafficking in her new Novel: MORE THAN RICE.
While traveling in Southeast Asia and India Pamala was appalled by the treatment of women and the sex trafficking of children. Pamala decided to do something about it and she did-she wrote a Novel and launched a campaign. A campaign that Pamala says brings awareness and redemption much like her Novel when you go inside the brothel with 30 very different young women who learn to cope amidst the pain and 4 young ladies who find their destiny.
