  1. Every myth covered and cut down. There’s nothing more to say. United Nations – are you listening? Do-gooders are you listening? Politicans – are you listening? Feminist sisters – are you listening? Pimps, profiteers and traffickers are you listening?
    You’d better….

  3. I don’t think there’s any one thing that pushes women and girls into the world of the prostituted. I think the reasons why are as varied as the women who have been in that world. Poverty as a reason? For some. Drugs as a reason? For some. Force as a reason? For most. Internalization of past abuse as a reason? For many. A combination of all of these? For a lot. Anyone who says there is a single reason women and girls end up in that world are being simplistic.
