"For every woman and girl violently attacked, we reduce our humanity. For every woman forced into unprotected sex because men demand this, we destroy dignity and pride. Every woman who has to sell her life for sex we condemn to a lifetime in prison. For every moment we remain silent, we conspire against our women."

- Nelson Mandela

The eradication of Prostitution, as it is the only solution in stopping the abuse and exploitation experienced by Prostituted Persons. If we care about women, children and men who are exploited in the System of Prostitution, then Full Decriminalisation is simply NOT an option.

Partial Decriminalisation of Prostitution

Partial Decriminalisation, where all role-players and activities are criminalised, EXCEPT for the Prostituted Persons (who are sold or are forced to sell themselves, or who believe there is no other option but to sell themselves, for sex, as a means of survival or third-party exploitation, which is often difficult to differentiate).

Proactive prosecution

Proactive prosecution of those who benefit financially by selling women, children and men for sex – such as pimps and brothel-keepers.

Proactive prosecution of sex buyers, in order to help eradicate sexual abuse and exploitation of persons trapped in Prostitution.

Abolish Prostitution

Effectively eradicating the harms of Prostitution by addressing the socio-economic circumstances that give rise to it, and keep accountable those who benefit from the exploitation of others’ vulnerabilities.

Providing Prostituted Persons (who are sold or are forced to sell themselves) with viable opportunities to exit the System of Prostitution for good.

Advocating for the prioritisation of creating viable alternatives/opportunities for vulnerable and marginalised individuals, to either exit the System of Prostitution or to not enter Prostitution in the first place.

Empowering those who are vulnerable to falling into the System of Prostitution, with dignified skills, education and job opportunities.

Change Public View

Enlightenment, where the public will see prostituted persons as individuals with the right to dignity, a fair chance to make a living; to count and matter; and to have the right to be protected; that they are forced into an exploitive system by their circumstances and not necessarily by free choice – most do not “choose” to be prostituted.

Informing the public of the faulty and inadequate process that is being followed; the research that is being ignored; and how the public is beingdeceived with inaccurate information; especially by not clarifying to the public that there is also an option of “Partial” Decriminalisation of Prostitution.
