Three months ago, the NZ Herald came under fire for its role in sex crimes against a young Auckland teenager, by publishing sex ads that sold the services of a teen, believed to be 18 in the ads, when it was revealed later on in court that she was 14. Stop Demand works to reduce the demand that drives the global sex trade. Denise Ritchie is the founder and barrister, and she says it's still happening.

Ms Ritchie claims that NZME has tightened up processes and in a time when we're asking for greater respect for women, shouldn't the publisher "step-up and get it sorted"?
