Tania Fiolleau (born 1971) is an activist against human trafficking, prostitution, and the sex industry. In 1996, she divorced her husband, who had been abusing her; he was convicted four times. He subsequently fought with her for the next five years for custody of their two sons. She applied for legal aid, but was rejected, and she began staying at a women's shelter with her children. In order to finance her fight to retain custody of her sons, Fiolleau responded to a vague classified advertisement. She thereby entered the sex industry, earning $1,700 on her first night. Fiolleau became a madam in charge of four brothels. Fiolleau was married into the Russian mafia. She eventually left the sex industry. She once had more than 500 prostitutes working under her. She later said, "I do apologize publicly for exploiting these women. I was exploited myself." Fiolleau is from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and wrote Souled Out, an autobiography and bestseller. A second edition of the book was published and an American film adaptation was planned. In 2011, she joined Tara Teng, who was Miss Canada at the time, for the Ignite the Road to Justice tour, which travelled to 10 Canadian cities raising awareness about human trafficking. Tania is currently a TV Talk show host on Joy TV Network which is a national TV talk show with a five million subcribership. Fiolleau is an international speaker and preacher. Fiolleau is the founder of Save The Women International Organization that rescues women and children out of human trafficking. Tania has been a martial artist since she was 14 years old acquiring black belts and becoming very skilled in Jui-jitsi, Russian Sambo, Pankration, Korean Kick-boxing & Thai-Kwon-Do.
