Presentation: Exposing the Connections Between All Forms of Sexual Exploitation

America is suffering from a sexual exploitation crisis. Evidence supports the fact that child sexual abuse, prostitution, pornography, sex trafficking, sexual violence, etc., are not isolated phenomena occurring in a vacuum.

Rather, these and other forms of sexual abuse and exploitation overlap and reinforce one another.

In this presentation, Dawn Hawkins spoke about these connections and provided insight into innovative solutions that can begin to dismantle the web of sexual exploitation.

This event is a part of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation’s Confronting Sexploitation Summer Seminar Series. To learn more, visit
