Forget the propaganda and hear the evidence on rape, trafficking and prostitution
6-7pm Monday 2 November
Committee Room 3A
House of Lords
Enter through St Stephen’s entrance
The day before the final debate on the prostitution clauses in the PCB, please join us in a discussion of the evidence. Whatever your views on the sex industry, women’s safety must be the priority. Trafficking cannot be stopped by driving prostitution further underground.
