On legalizing prostitution

Standard

“ The vast majority of women in prostitution are the victims, not the cause, of violence and abuse, and find themselves in constant danger of harm at the hands of pimps and punters. Countries that have implemented the Nordic model – based on a law first introduced in Sweden in 1999 that criminalises the demand for prostitution and decriminalises those selling sex – has two main goals: to curb the demand for prostitution and promote equality between women and men ”

Julie Bindel, ‘Why are women who have escaped prostitution still viewed as criminals?’, The Guardian
