On the glamorisation of prostitution.

“…the vast majority of women involved are experiencing some form of coercion. {…} “Prostitution is, for the vast majority, a survival tactic. It is not something they would be doing if they felt they had any other choices. {…} “There is a risk in glamorising something that really involves a lot of organised criminality. Women face the daily risk of being attacked, beaten, sexually assaulted, and there is a very significant impact on women’s emotional well-being in terms of having to sell your body again and again to strangers,” Sarah Benson, CEO Ruhama.

“This is not Pretty Woman. {…} “This is rape for profit.” David McIlveen, DUP on sex trafficking in NI.
