Editor's note:

After the People's Republic of China was established in 1949, Chairman Mao Zedong once had a conversation with newly appointed Minister of Public Security Luo Ruiqing, saying that prostitution should be banned from the new country. Ever since that moment, the government set up a campaign throughout China, "liberating" prostitutes by reassigning them to correctional facilities, providing some with medical treatment and yet others with factory jobs.
