Dear FIL organisers,
Thank you for your response to our letter (18 Oct below). It does not, however, address the issue we raised. We were to be invited to speak not on prostitution but on unwaged caring work – an issue we have been working on for over 40 years. Yet we were deemed unsuitable because of our views on prostitution, which had no relevance to this panel and have never been discussed with Mothers At Home Matter.
