Sexual exploitation thrives when it’s hidden in the shadows.

It’s time to shine a light on the commercial sex industry and break the cycle of exploitation.

What is the root system of sexual exploitation? A society that facilitates it.

We live in a pornified society that promotes sexual objectification and tolerates sexual exploitation. The “sex sells” mindset has saturated the world around us, even shaping the lives of our children. But what happens to a society that commercializes sex?

Sexuality becomes separated from a real person and becomes a commodity. It becomes no more valuable than the product it’s pushing. Though sex trafficking is a deeply disturbing injustice, its existence is not all that shocking in light of the way much of our world views sexuality.

If we want to live in a world where people aren’t sold for sex, then our hyper-sexualized society must be transformed—that’s how we can stop exploitation before it starts.

“In this age, in this country, public sentiment is everything. With it, nothing can fail; against it, nothing can succeed. Whoever molds public sentiment goes deeper than he who enacts statutes, or pronounces judicial decisions.” —Abraham Lincoln

Societies can change
case study

In early 19th century Britain, William Wilberforce faced a similar challenge to the one we are facing today.

He lived in a society that permitted and embraced slavery as a normal way of life. He knew that to enact change he would need to change the culture, so he—alongside many like-minded abolitionists—launched a strategic grassroots campaign to educate the masses and change public opinion. Though it took decades, Wilberforce helped bring about a historic shift in the minds of the people, resulting in the abolition of slavery in the entire British Empire.
