This article misses so many points: the demand for sex, survivor voices, violence against women in the sex trade, the success of the Nordic model, etc.
And the claim that legalizing prostitution is feminist! Two of the quoted women say that by choosing prostitution they don't have to rely on a man to provide for them.... except that the ONLY thing they need to provide for themselves is a MAN's demand for sex! Prostitution as "work" is the ultimate form of dependance on men.
