not natasha,” a photographic essay on eastern european sex trafficked slaves by dana popa

(documentary, the real sex traffic; film, lilya 4-ever)

This is important. Because most of the time - recent central Ohio studies show as high as 92% of cases - girls arrested for (and convicted of) prostitution are actually victims of sexual exploitation. And nothing will change for them, for the girls in these stories, unless law enforcement and communities in general start seeing things differently.

the stories and accounts above are true, and are USA but this is happening everywhere, UK, Canada, everywhere, this has got to stop, it can not continue, lets end slavery for good, check out the sites below to find out what you can do about it,

That means looking after yourself, practicing self care, no mean words, honesty, and lots of other little things. Would you get angry at a friend for being tired? Would you call a friend mean names because they didn’t look a certain way, or made a mistake? No? Then please don’t do it to yourself either.
