Monica Boseff of the Open Door Foundation uses a story to illustrate that aftercare for survivors of sex trafficking involves healing in many different areas; one of these is their view of men.
Monica Boseff tells the story of a male guard at her shelter who made the girls breakfast one morning. Shocked by this kindness, the girls called her. Why would anyone, let alone a man, do something nice like this for us? That was their question. Monica's answer: because you deserve to be treated with respect. Monica argues that this story highlights the importance of having men involved in anti-trafficking efforts, and in victim aftercare. While precautions are important, good men can have a unique role to play in helping survivors to heal in certain circumstances.
