How does a young woman find herself involved in prostitution in Ireland? In an era that asks us to take a 'sex-positive' view of it, how does this translate in reality? And why aren't we talking about it more?

Any Girl is one woman's first-hand account of Ireland's sex trade.

An experience of sexual exploitation as a teenager carved a direct path for Mia into the world of prostitution, a hidden part of her life during her college years in Dublin. There, in a system of casual entitlement, she met with abuse, violence and degradation, finally leaving it behind at age 24.

Over a decade on, now a psychotherapist specialising in sexual trauma, Mia shares her remarkable story with passion and a determination to challenge dominant perceptions of prostitution today. Any Girl amounts to a radical act of truthtelling that shines with courage and hope.
