What can I do about it?

We need widespread awareness raising and education on the realities of prostitution and other forms of commercial sexual exploitation.

A few things that will help make a difference:

  • Learn more - see our leaflet on Prostitution: Fact or Fiction and see below for recommended reading and useful contacts.
  • Speak to family, friends and colleagues. Challenge acceptance of abuse.
  • Write to newspapers and other forms of media if you are offended by their coverage of prostitution or other forms of commercial sexual exploitation
  • Object to newspapers and magazines carrying adverts for the sex industry
  • Refuse to stay in hotels who supply pornography channels
  • Join the Scottish Coalition against Sexual Exploitation on Facebook
  • Lobby for organisational policies on prostitution, e.g. in terms of approach, recruitment of staff and volunteers
  • Make links with organisations offering specialist support and / or working directly with women in prostitution
  • Call for adequate legislation to challenge demand
  • Contact local, national and European elected representatives to make your views known.
