Pimps, Payment, and Patriarchy: How the Dignity of Women Dissipated and What We Can Do to Bring It Back
Whether people acknowledge it or not, sex trafficking is a reality, even here in Montana. Children and adults alike get tangled in its deathly grasp. This presentation argues that misplaced desire drives the sex trafficking world, reducing people to a disposable product. In short, sex trafficking denies the inherent dignity all human beings share. Using the methodologies and insights of Catholic theologians, including those of feminist origin, this presentation exposes the reality of sex trafficking and makes practical suggestions on what can be done to counter human trafficking through implementation of critical virtues needed in our society.
