There is No Such Thing as a child prostitute

Rights4Girls is a human rights organization dedicated to ending gender-based violence against young women and girls in the U.S. We work to change the narrative as well as policies that allow girls to be criminalized when they are victimized; and advocate for approaches that provide girls and young women with safety and support. Our human rights work includes public education campaigns, policy development and advocacy, coalition building, research, and training and technical assistance.
