Ask Caroline MacGillivray why she started Beauty Night Society, and she’ll tell you stories.
There was the time she was volunteering at a drop-in centre on the Downtown Eastside and a woman asked her what it was like to be a kid. The woman’s father had started raping her when she was four. At age six, he started selling her, and by 10 she was in foster homes.
