More women are employed by the sex industry than any other time in history and there are more strip clubs in the United States than any other nation in the world.
Many people are under the impression that these girls enter this business for "easy money", but there is nothing easy about the money they make. Compared to the general population, women in the sex industry experience higher rates of:
Rape and violent assault
Sexually transmitted diseases
and Post traumatic stress disorder comparable to war vetrans!
The average age of entry into prostitution is 12-14 years of age, and there are 1.39 million victims of commercial sexual servitude worldwide!
Most of the girls drawn to this industry have been victims of sexual abuse as children and 87% of them want out but have financial concerns and multifaceted challenges.
The women in this industry face a myriad of issues that impact their physical,
emotional, and spiritual well-being. They are a largely unreached population
and many feel desperately isolated and alone. Even those who would
contemplate going to church wonder if there truly is a place for them there.
Will they find the restoration they are seeking in the house of God? We know the answer is YES! The women working in these clubs are "loved beyond measure, daughters of a King!"
