Interesting Article On Prostitution And The Law In France

2 posts in this topic

TheGuardian has an interesting and surprisingly even-handed report on this.

For example, Chrisafis quotes the feminist writer Sylviane Agacinski as saying that "Slavery hasn't been eradicated, but it has been abolished. The same choice for prostitution would be an advance for civilisation" - but then quotes another feminist, Elisabeth Badinter, as saying that talk of abolishing prostitution was based on "two debatable assumptions: that charging for sex is an affront to women's dignity and that all prostitutes are victims of their bastard clients .... [a woman selling sex was] "not necessarily a victim of male oppression". And not all clients were "horrible predators or sexual obsessives who treat the woman as disposable objects".

‚ÄčNice to get something that isn't the usual one-sided rant about all prostitutes being either trafficked or as economically forced into the business.
