The full decriminalization of prostitution is a policy gaining traction among some groups and policy makers. However, it is a policy that inherently increases the rates of violence against women and sex trafficking not to mention its complete normalization of the sexually exploitive system of prostitution. This presentation will address the reasons we must oppose the full decriminalization of prostitution.


Taina Bien-Aimé is the Executive Director of the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CATW), one of the oldest international organizations dedicated to ending trafficking in women and girls and commercial sexual exploitation as practices of gender-based violence and discrimination.
