Meet Laila Mickelwait, like many others wants sites such as P/rnhub to be shut down altogether.
Laila is the Founder and CEO of the Justice Defense Fund and the global #Traffickinghub movement supported by millions around the world. So, in these very roles, she has been battling the injustice of sex trafficking for over a decade as a leading expert in the field.
So, amid Netflix’s Money Shot: The P/rnhub Story going on following its release on 15 March 2023, let us tell you all about Laila who is also in a way involved in the making of the documentary. How? Let us tell you in the rest of the writing.
Laila Mickelwait On Netflix’s Money Shot: The P/rnhub Story
Netflix’s Money Shot: The P/rnhub Story introduces Laila Mickelwait and her agenda to its audience. But, it fails to convince her for any interview. Even The Guardian wrote in its recent review of the film that it has failed to get to grip the audience with the real issue for P/rnhub, OnlyFans, or similar sites because it does not interview the big players including anti-P/rnhub activist Laila. The film only interviews the models and the performers as creative entrepreneurs and heroes of consenting sensuality.
Decider also goes on to comment that Laila declined to be interviewed for the documentary.
Laila Mickelwait Background
Laila Mickelwait claims to have been combating issues about sex trafficking for about 15 years.
The #Traffickinghub movement that Laila brought around is a non-religious, non-partisan, decentralized global effort to hold P/rnhub accountable for enabling and profiting from the sex trafficking and criminal sexual exploitation of countless victims. Some six months ago, the #Traffickinghub petition had been signed by over 2.2 million people from 192 countries.
In recent times, she has also emerged as a forceful opponent of Big P/rn, a multibillion-dollar industry peddling a highly addictive product yet receiving none of the scrutiny faced by Big Tobacco for instance.
Laila’s work and its impact have been in news articles around the globe, in outlets including The New York Times, The New Yorker, The New York Post, BBC News, CNN, Bloomberg, Reuters, AP, CNBC, Fox News, Forbes, The Washington Post, The Washington Examiner, The Guardian, and many others.
Laila earned her Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Government from the University of California-Riverside. Then, she got her Master of Public Diplomacy degree from the Annenberg School of Communications and the Dornsife School of International Relations at the University of Southern California. She took a few years for herself afterward before embarking on a journey as an advocate against sexual abuse, sex trafficking, and sexual exploitation in every way possible.
Is Laila Mickelwait Married?
Indeed. Laila Mickelwait is married and has been so for a very long time. She got married to her husband Joel Mickelwait back on 29 June 2008. Lalia was only 25 and Joel was 28 at the time. Also, Laila used to go around by her maiden name, Laila Haddad, before that happened.
Fast forward to today, Joel on his LinkedIn introduces himself as a D.D.S. at Mickelwait Family Dentistry & Dental Spa. The very degree in dentistry, he received from Loma Linda University, School of Dentistry.
Laila and her husband also happen to be business partners. They co-founded the now no longer operating OML ENTERPRISES LLC in 2009 and ran it for more than two years.
Afterward, they also actively ran their nonprofit, New Reality International. Back in 2010, they took a team of dentists, doctors, and other medical professionals to bring dental and medical care to the most impoverished neighborhoods.
In a Caribbean nation, they were also recorded helping victims left by a devastating earthquake.
Speaking of their children, the couple has at least one kid. We have not heard Laila mention another child or more.
