Actress-turned-activist Daryl Hannah continued her fight against sex trafficking at the weekend (ends16Jan11), by riding along with Oregon police as they patrolled strip clubs and areas known for prostitution.
America's Federal Bureau of Investigation estimates more than 100,000 underage girls are exploited for commercial sex in the U.S. every year - and the Kill Bill star is doing what she can to fight the epidemic.
The actress was in Portland to attend a weekend conference against sex trafficking, and took the opportunity to patrol areas where girls are at risk of being exploited, and she admits she was stunned to see so many young women represented by pimps.
She tells local website KGW.com, "I was shocked at what I learned. Most of the girls in these strip clubs are not just girls looking to make cash; a majority are represented by pimps."
Hannah also supports a bill sponsored by U.S. Senator Ron Wyden that would fund shelters for young women to help them escape sex trafficking, explaining, "To learn there are no shelters specifically for victims of trafficking is absolutely shocking."
