Hollywood has long been a bellwether for what is considered to be popular and acceptable by a large portion of the population. Over the years, a certain pattern has been noticed that women are supposed to be immoral and loose with sexual activity.

This is a list of 72 actresses which have played “fallen women” over the years.

Here is a listing of academy award winners and nominees who played prostitutes or loose women with the first winner from 1927-28, Janet Gaynor.

Here is a classic film guide essay about prostitutes and film.

Natalie Portman has auditioned for a part where she would be a hooker. Nothing like trying to follow in the footsteps of such luminaries as Sharon Stone, Julia Roberts, Jodie Foster, Jane Fonda, Kim Basinger, Gweneth Paltrow, Rachel Ward, Susan Sarandon, Mira Sorvino, Elizabeth Shoe, Shirley Maclaine, Charlize Theron, Elizabeth Taylor, Dolly Parton. . . .

These are gl(amorous) women in a glamorous job glorifying prostitution. In fairness, some of the roles show more truth than others.

Bad stuff.

Women who are arrested for prostitution look nothing like movie stars; or at least they don’t in Wichita, Kansas which has an anti-prostitution page where they post the mugshot photos of people arrested for prostitution related activities.

Hopefully this will effectively discourage those activities.

Many women involved in prostitution are drug-addicted and need help instead of incarceration. There are even international prostitution rings where women are kept as sex-slaves and transported back and forth across state and national boundaries for work. This is an evil that will not be stopped as long as there is a market for it and our primary solution is to lock up the real victims (women and underage girls) involved. With the prostitution rings however, the trend is to lock up the handlers instead of the workers. Silver lining to a very dark cloud.
