    Somaly Mam (born 1970 or 1971) is a Cambodian author and human rights advocate who focuses primarily on sex trafficking. From 1996 to 2014, Mam was involved in campaigns against sex trafficking. She set up the Somaly Mam Foundation, raised money, appeared on major television programs and spoke at many international events.After allegations of lying had appeared in The Cambodia Daily in 2012 and 2013, Newsweek ran a cover-story in May 2014 claiming that Mam had fabricated stories of abuse about herself and others. After being presented by Goodwin Procter, a Boston-based law firm, with details pertaining to potential inconsistencies and untruths publicly disclosed by Mam related to her life, she resigned from the foundation she had set up, which has since shut down, and she moved back to live in Cambodia. In September 2014, Mam protested her innocence in an interview in Marie Claire, and returned to New York, hoping to restore her reputation.
