TheDC’s Stephanie Hamill Blasts Women’s March for Defending Backpage.com
The Daily Caller’s Stephanie Hamill is calling out the Women’s March for defending the embattled BackPage.com, the website that was allegedly used to facilitate both adult and child prostitution.
The Department of Justice shut down the website popular with sex workers over the weekend and charged the site’s founders, Michael Lacey and James Larkin, with facilitating prostitution and money laundering.
The Women’s March’s official Twitter called the shutdown of the website an “absolute crisis for sex workers.”
. The shutting down of #Backpage is an absolute crisis for sex workers who rely on the site to safely get in touch with clients. Sex workers rights are women’s rights. Follow @SafeSpacesDC @melissagira @swopusa @KateDAdamo @supporthosechi @anaorsomething for more info. https://t.co/S3Orx3aM8Z

“The so-called feminists that are running the Women’s March are turning a blind eye to the crimes committed against women and children,” Hamill said.
“Not one word in these tweets about the site not doing enough to prevent sex trafficking and child prostitution, not one word!”
“If you google backpage.com, there are pages and pages of news articles and videos of women telling their stories about how they were trafficked as teens, this thanks to backpage.com that made it easy for pimps to manage their appointments and collect their money.”
