Child Prostitution by Jessica Ward and Leigh Benzaia

site map


Women are objectified every second of every day.

They are being assessed by people surrounding them.

They are being followed as they walk through a parking lot, up to their door, in the street, either literally or simply by the scrutinizing eye.

Each part of their physical prowess is noticed and picked apart.

Prostitutes take advantage of this aspect of our society by putting a price tag on themselves and allowing themselves to become a commodity.


Jessica Ward and Leigh Benzaia are students at Parsons School of Design.
