The Hague raises awareness for child prostitution

May 17, 2018

On Monday 14 May at 8 a.m., Pauline Krikke, the Mayor of The Hague, symbolically started the Free A Girl Foundation’s Lock Me Up action which raises awareness about the Week Against Child Prostitution. The ceremony was done in the lobby of WTC The Hague by literally ‘locking up’ WTC The Hague’s Managing Director Eveline Steenbergen and lawyer Carolien Brederije. These two top professional women of The Hague remained in their ‘cubicles’, which symbolise the cubicles of brothels in India, of 1 by 2 metres for 12 hours. The Lock Me Up action was held in two places in The Hague – including WTC The Hague from Monday 14 May to Friday 18 May. For more information, see
