Description/Abstract

A Canadian study of ex-prostitutes in Alberta indicated that many had been sexually abused within their families. A comparison with sexually abused controls who did not enter the sex trade indicated less severe sexual abuse and less association with other forms of family violence and abuse.

As runaways from abusive homes young adolescents are at risk from pimps and drug dealers. A comparison is drawn with juvenile prostitution involving girls in Bombay and Manila, and it is argued that female child prostitution is much less in these cities than in Calgary.
