WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (The Exponent) – A woman crossed the stage of the Elliott Hall of Music wearing a scarf around her head, having recently been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. No one would have assumed that this bubbly woman cracking jokes was once a sex slave.

As part of her presentation, “I Once Was a Sex Slave but Now I am Free,” Melissa Woodward shared her story on Friday as part of Purdue’s weekend-long Annual Symposium. The Symposium, led by a number of ministries and churches on campus, alters its topic every year. This year’s is titled “Human Dignity, Slavery and Sex Trafficking.”
