In the age of Game of Thrones and The Girlfriend Experience, everyday Americans are regularly confronted with normalized depictions of prostituted women and men. From Amnesty International and TED Talks calling for full decriminalization of sex trade, there is a concerted effort underway to convince the public that prostitution is just another job.

However, the real-life experiences of those who are prostituted are far from glamorous or empowering but are filled with exploitation, violence, and degradation.

What can be done to combat this growing cultural phenomenon? That is what this event, hosted by the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, will address. This is a vital event for anyone seeking to combat one of the oldest forms of oppression.

This event was part of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation’s Confronting Sexploitation summer seminar series. Click here to learn more about upcoming NCOSE events.
