SHOW OF SUPPORT TO VEDNITA CARTER TESTIFYING AT PARLIMENT

Think about where you are now. Then check out these early talk shows from 1987 - 1992. http://traffickingandprostitutionservices.blogspot.com/2016/07/interviews-from-1980s-and-early-90s.html This was the first time the American public was hearing anyone talk about the idea we were not "Happy Hookers", that most of us could not quit alone, and there were those of us being "forced" (remember we didn't have the word "trafficking back in that time time). to be in prostitution who required someone to step in and GET HELP TO GET US OUT. Remember how we used to be viewed only and solely as either "criminals" who needed to be locked up and chased off the block because we were a "threat to decent society" OR we were thought of like we were all living large at the Playboy Mansion. Remember Dorothy Stratton? She was in Playboy and Peter Bogdonovich was a director who had wanted to make her the next Marilyn Monroe. H
