Although not physically restrained, women working in the adult entertainment industry often feel trapped and like they have no other options in life. In this breakout, Rachelle Starr will explain how she has devoted her entire life to helping women find their voice, find their identity, and find their way out of the adult entertainment industry.
Rachelle Starr lives in Louisville, Kentucky with her husband Josh and three-year-old son, Isaac. After several years of working in advertising and marketing, Rachelle felt burdened to help and serve women who have been exploited by the adult entertainment industry. In 2009 she founded Scarlet Hope, an organization that serves strippers, prostitutes, and trafficking victims. When Rachelle isn’t working, she enjoys traveling with her family, playing cards, and baking at Scarlet’s Bakery, a social enterprise she founded to hire women out of exploitation.
