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
- 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.
