Below are a few excerpts from the interview – Click here to read the full blog post.
"All of our women say that there is love and acceptance [at Rethreaded]. They aren't judged for their past. That's why women stay with it and believe in it," Keen told me.
"I asked our women, 'What do you want Rethreaded's voice to be? What do you want people to know?' One woman told me that she wants people to be able to see her for who she is now, not for where she's been. There's a huge stigma attached to anyone associated with sex trade."
