Up to 90% of women in the sex industry were sexually abused as children. Keep this staggering stat in mind as you continue to read.
Kelly* shared a few of her memories from her childhood.
I can hear the deep cry of Kelly’s heart longing to be heard, protected and cared for. Kelly’s childhood trauma played a part in her path into stripping. Her story is one of the 400,000 strippers employed by U.S. strip clubs.
“If it’s not broke, don’t fix it”, however, women and girls are being abused in broken families, and foster care systems, and its time to fix this!
Kelly is now living a full and vibrant life. She is a strong woman who truly understands her value and worth. She has found healing from her past through her constant and supportive community learned that her voice is important. Her story didn’t have the end in hurt, pain or darkness.
