7-Year-Old Girl Forced Dance in Inappropriate dress to Support Her Family

Huang Doudou, a primary school student from Urumqi, China, has in recent times caused controversy in Chinese media, after her shocking story became viral. The 7-year-old lives with her parents in room just 12-square-meters in size. Her mother has a crippled left leg and tries to support the family by peddling in the streets and babysitting, while her father, who suffer from a serious stomach condition, can only do light jobs. They hardly managed to make ends meet every month, so young Huang Doudou stepped in and decided to use her dance skills to contribute to the family budget and pay for her dance tuition.
During the day, Huang Doudou looks like a normal 7-year-old girl, but seeing her perform at her night job, wearing extreme makeup and dressed inappropriately, you would think she was twice her age.
Asked what her biggest wish was, Doudou answered she always want to go to the cinema. Her mother had won a ticket in a text messaging contest, but by the time they manage to get to the cinema, they said their tickets were expires…
Huang Doudou’s story made headlines because of her young age, but there are thousands of Chinese children required to do all kinds of inappropriate things for their age, in order to help their family survive.
