Call in to speak with the host
Hear from a woman who tells us of being sexually abused by a relative when she was only three years old. How she got into stripping and then progressed into the darker more violent world of prostitution. After becoming a prostitute - she started using drugs. From there she tells about being forced at gunpoint to turn "tricks". A life where even her own "girlfriends" who were other prostitutes were selling her out to save their own skins.
This survivor just narrowly escaped a serial killer's grip - prostitutes being the favorite victim of these killer's because the police don't care about the prostitute victim's as much as when they're secretaries or soccer moms.
Listen as she tells how the police and the court system treated her like a criminal. Understand why these victims need "separate" programs to get out of what they've been trapped into and how they don't know how to escape and recover from without help.
Let this survivor tell you in her own words why better systems and treatment need to be made available to help not just these victims - but their children also.
She brings up a point one isn't hearing much - these victims are often mothers too. Whether you want to know about sex trafficking in Virginia - or all over the USA (because the pimps move the victims from state to state to stay ahead of the law) - this is the show for you.
This victim is interviewed by J. Williams, founder of Sex Workers Anonymous and Trafficking and Prostitution Services.
