Crouse Addresses Liberty University Abolishing Slavery Conference
“When a girl’s dad doesn’t tell her and show her that she is loved, valued,
and appreciated as a special creation of God, she is vulnerable to the predators
who walk the halls of her school and prowl the streets of her town.”

- Janice Shaw Crouse

Washington, D.C. - On Friday, March 4, 2011, Dr. Janice Shaw Crouse, Senior Fellow of Concerned Women for America’s Beverly LaHaye Institute, will be the concluding plenary speaker for Liberty University’s Third Annual Abolishing Slavery Conference held at the Helms School of Government in Lynchburg, Virginia. Dr. Crouse’s topic, “Two Anti-Trafficking Challenges: Demand and Decriminalization,” addresses two central and controversial public policy issues facing modern-day abolitionists.

Dr. Crouse said, “There are more people in slavery NOW than at any other point in human history. Around the world, the very poor, uneducated, low caste, or minorities are among the world’s most vulnerable children and women. Here in the United States, the most vulnerable are society’s “throwaway” children and runaway teens.” Human trafficking is the second largest crime in the world, right behind drug trafficking, and an estimated 30 million people live in slavery, including forced labor, sexual slavery, debt bondage, and child soldiering.

“Our nation must address the fact that pornography fuels prostitution and recognize that our cultural glorification of the ‘pimp and ho’ lifestyle through music, video games, and movies increases the exploitation of girls and women,” said Dr. Crouse. “In fact, demand is at the center of the swirling vortex of violence, slavery, and misogyny that is prostitution, sex trafficking, and pornography.”

Concerned Women for America is the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization.
