Online Book Discussion: The Paper Daughters of Chinatown by Heather B. Moore
Paper Daughters were young Chinese girls given false papers to come to America believing they would become wives or workers and forced into prostitution and slavery instead. Donaldina Cameron, a real-life pioneer for social justice, fights corrupt officials and violent gangs to rescue thousands of enslaved women. This is based on true events in nineteenth century San Francisco.
