The Catholic Feminist

Oct 30, 2019

When we’re asking women to leave behind lives of sex work, it’s vital to focus on HOW they got to where they are and WHAT they need in order to leave that path behind. Today’s guest, CarrieLynn Mascaro from Catholic Charities, is here to help us understand ways the Church is helping women stop selling their bodies. What I love about CarrieLynn’s approach is the way she focuses on the systematic problems—like affordable housing—that leave women feeling like they have no other option. We also discussed whether she’d ever back a legal avenue for prostitution, what she personally has learned from the women she’s encountered, and how her mom’s recent death has been bringing her closer to God. This episode is a powerful one and I hope it resonates with you and empowers you to fight for women in your own community and globally.
