PAPERBACK
Categories: Memoirs
'Searing and generous ... a blazing beacon' - Donal Ryan 'Every man and woman should read this' - Sabina Higgins 'Written with honesty, power and insight' - Róisìn Ingle 'Immensely valuable ... raw and vulnerable' - Irish Times 'A sobering ... timely call to arms' - Irish Independent How does a young woman find herself involved in prostitution in Ireland? In an era that asks us to take a 'sex-positive' view of it, how does this translate in reality? And why aren't we talking about it more? Any Girl is one woman's first-hand account of Ireland's sex trade. An experience of sexual exploitation as a teenager carved a direct path for Mia into the world of prostitution, a hidden part of her life during her college years in Dublin. There, in a system of casual entitlement, she met with abuse, violence and degradation, finally leaving it behind at age 24. Over a decade on, now a psychotherapist specialising in sexual trauma, Mia shares her remarkable story with passion and a determination to challenge dominant perceptions of prostitution today. Any Girl amounts to a radical act of truthtelling that shines with courage and hope. 'A powerful and important book' - Ivana Bacik, T.D. 'Will open your eyes and your heart to a hidden world that most choose to ignore' Jarlath Regan
