Rebecca Mott – Individual Award Nominee – 2011

Rebecca is a tireless campaigner against the suffering of women in pornography and prostitution. She does this at enormous personal cost because as a survivor of prostitution and familial sexual abuse herself it means perpetual flashbacks and recurring trauma. This has never stopped Rebecca taking her campaign to the heart of enemy territory. She has put herself forward to events and spoken and participated in forums filled with people who deny the reality she has experienced and accuse her of lies, distortion and insanity. She does it on her own, full time, and in a way, through her writing and speaking, which powerfully affects everyone she meets.
