Lent 17: On the streets

True Grit: Women Taking On the World, for God's Sake

Between 300,000 and 600,000 juveniles are engaged in prostitution in the United States. Girls are increasingly younger, dropping from 14 to 13 years of age and even 12. Each year between 1.2 million and 2 million teenagers hit the street — runaways and ‘throwaways’ — and half of them will turn to prostitution to survive.

Wondering what this is all about? Read my post explaining why and how I’m commemorating Lent this year.
