    Have you seen this documentary? It's about our young girls on the streets of prostitution....This is very sad, but goes on on a daily basis...Lets not ignore these young women.



    Very Young Girls, whose title reflects the fact that in the United States the average age of entry into prostitution is just thirteen. The film takes us into the work of a former sexually exploited youth-turned-activist named Rachel Lloyd, who started the New York City organization GEMS (Girls Educational and Mentoring Services) to help victimized young women escape their pimps and find another way of life.

    peace


    NYC is notorious for this.....young girls, especially in the spring and summer walk the streets wearing just about nothing trying to flag down cars day and night. In some areas the police let it take place because most of them are on the take and get money out of their pimps! Some areas get cleaned up, but it's only a matter of time before different girls are right back out there.

    In the Bx there is an area so popular that they make documantaries about it.

    The area is called Hunts Point! they had an hour long HBO special on it even..... I'm sure you can find it on Youtube!

    Without any focus

    this issue will be reduced to just another chit chat

    "what do you know" conversation piece

    like some old Jerry Springer ish rather then something we can

    seriously mobilize to take action about:qqb010:

    As the economy gets worse

    do we honestly think this situation will get worse or emeliorate without community input????

    And for those who want to tell you the crack epidemic is over,
    tell them to take a look at reality

    and how much drugs also plays a part of this nightmare and human degredation

    MsInterpret, Thanks for posting this. This really boils my blood. Almost makes me wish these "boys" would find a bullet in their heads, and someone could save her.

    But...

    I really don't have any answers, except maybe economic development. But, that would only decrease it and not eliminate the problem.

    PS: These boys would crumble in the face of a real man. I hope they get their just rewards.

    Economic development is key

    It will not end the problem but it will keep families together, alleviate alot of self esteem issues that poverty and the despertion that poverty brings, as the economy goes down the sewer

    and programs that help teen and pre teen, at risk young girls are slashed and burned, in the new budget cuts

    From the website mentioned

    GEMS
    www.gems-girls.org

    there is a national effort/ called Council of Daughters
    www.councilofdaughters.ning.com

    that folks can email to find out what local efforts and similar groups they can support and work with in their state


    An injury to one is an injury to all
