See Very Young Girls On Showtime

Teenage Protitutes in Very Young GirlsPeople who see Very Young Girls, David Shisgal's powerful and heartbreaking documentary about tween and teen prostitution in New York City, are often moved to ask how they can help make a difference in the lives of the girls featured in the film and countless others who find themselves in similarly abusive and devastating situations.

The film focuses on the work of GEMS, a nonprofit organization that reaches out to young girls at risk, and attempts to put them on a path leading to a safer, healthier, better way of life. GEMS is always looking for support.

Additionally, it's important to spread the word about Very Young Girls, so the issue of child prostitution is kept in the spotlight.

The film is being shown on Showtime on Demand. It's also available on DVD via Netflix. If you want to help these Very Young Girls, make sure everyone you know sees the film. Feel free to use my review to convince them to do so.
