What is Defend Dignity all about?
Defend Dignity exists to help end sexual exploitation in all its forms.
Commercial sexual exploitation includes: prostitution, strip clubs, escorts, massage parlours and pornography. All involve the selling and buying of sexual services which undermine the dignity of women, men and children and are detrimental to a healthy society.
In Canada, Indigenous women & girls and children in care are vastly over-represented in prostitution.
Defend Dignity believes:
- in the inherent dignity and value of all women, men and children made in the image of God.
- prostitution is a form of sexual exploitation, oppression and violence especially against women and children and seriously undermines their dignity and value
- prostitution is detrimental to a healthy society
