Rachel Moran was prostituted for seven years in Dublin and other Irish cities, beginning when she was fifteen-years-old. She managed to extricate herself from prostitution in 1998, at the age of 22. In the millennium year she returned to education and completed a degree in Journalism from Dublin City University. More recently, she has completed an MA in Creative Writing at University College Dublin.
She has been involved in the political push for the Nordic Model in Ireland since she first addressed the crowd gathered at the launch of the Turn Off The Red Light campaign in February, 2011. She has spoken at numerous international locations, including the United Nations Plaza in New York, the European Parliament, and Boston’s Harvard University. She works in conjunction with the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women, the European Women’s Lobby, Equality Now, Demand Abolition, and Donor Direct Action. Her memoir ‘Paid For’ has just been published by Gill and Macmillan and was most recently featured in the New York Times. Rachel Moran will speak about her experience, her support of the Nordic Model, and will be available for a book signing.
