Argument: Prostitution is an inappropriate solution to poverty
- Gunilla S. Ekberg. Special Advisor on prostitution and trafficking in women at the Swedish Division for Gender Equality Speech in Stockholm. Nov. 2002 - "Some prostitution defenders argue that prostitution is an acceptable solution to poverty....
- What they mean, but do not say, is that prostitution is an acceptable solution for women living in poverty. Seldom do we see proposals that poor men should make their way out of poverty by welcoming the insertion of penises and other objects into them on a regular basis or dance naked on a stage in front of ogling and masturbating males.
- The prostitution industry exploits to its advantage the fact that most women and children who are in prostitution come from the most oppressed and vulnerable groups in society."
