Rape and Prostitution – A Question of Consent

Date: Tuesday, 3 February 2009 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Location: House of Commons, London

While government feminists and religious fundamentalists equate prostitution with rape and claim most sex workers have been trafficked, rapists continue to get away with it – the conviction rate for reported rape in England and Wales is a shocking 6%.  But a growing international movement for women’s safety is demanding the decriminalization of sex work.  In England it has defeated government attempts to “rehabilitate” sex workers and is opposing proposals to raid brothels and criminalize clients. In San Francisco 41% voted for decriminalization in the last elections.
