Stop Using the Term Child Prostitute

Rights4Girls has launched an online campaign asking for media outlets to stop the use of the word “child prostitute.” Rights4Girls states that “Simply put, there is no such thing as a child prostitute. There is no difference between paying to rape a child and raping a child; all victims of child sex abuse should be treated the same way.”

Rights4Girls is a human rights organization based in Washington, D.C. that is working to “end sex trafficking and gender-based violence in the U.S.” To learn more about Rights4Girls, please click here.
