Hannah fights child sex slavery

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Actress Daryl Hannah, an activist against child sex slavery, rode with police in Oregon over the weekend as they patrolled strip clubs and areas known for prostitution.

Portland's KGW-TV reports that Hannah was in the city for a weekend conference against sex trafficking. She says she was shocked to learn a majority of the girls in the strip clubs are represented by pimps.

Hannah is supporting a bill sponsored by Sen. Ron Wyden that would fund shelters for young women to help them escape sex trafficking.

Hannah's credits include Splash, Kill Bill, Blade Runner, and A Walk To Remember.
