Gangs and Girls by Patrice Corriveau and Michel Dorais , Translated by Peter Feldstein

Gangs

In Gangs and Girls, Michel Dorais and Patrice Corriveau document how street gangs control the lucrative trade in underage girls. The authors discuss how young men are drawn to gang life, how young girls become attracted and attached to the gang members who eventually sell them into prostitution, and why it is so hard to infiltrate and dismantle the distinct but interrelated worlds of the procurer, victim, and client. Rooted firmly in first person testimony, this research deepens our understanding of juvenile prostitution by identifying and exploring the types of motivations and circumstances that lead teenagers into prostitution rings.
