Making the Harm Visible is a ground breaking collection of writings on the
global sexual exploitation of women and girls by survivors, activists and
service providers. The forty-four pieces from Asia, Africa, Europe, South
America, the Caribbean, North America and the Middle East offer personal,
insightful and challenging perspectives on sexual violence and
prostitution. In
response to the real and profound needs of women and girls throughout the
world, the contributors to this body of work offer an impressive and often
painful body of evidence of the harm caused by sexual exploitation and
violence. They reveal a spectrum of violence and exploitation from a
variety of
cultures and contexts, with the main focus on how prostitution industries
objectify and exploit women and girls. These accounts and reports describe
how
women are resisting the violence done to them as individuals and to the
women
and girls in their communities. They are speaking out, organizing protests,
building programs and movements and providing services to stop the violence,
heal the harm, and prevent future exploitation. The chorus of voices
recorded
in these pages continues the tradition and important work of women in
effecting
social change. The contributors to this volume share the common goal of
ending
violence and the sexual exploitation of women and girls. They are survivors
and
visionaries who are not afraid to confront overwhelming problems and remain
steadfast in their work. Most of them know that their goal is nothing less
than
revolutionary.
