Prostitutes are the most oppressed groups of women in our society. Prostitutes are abused, beaten and killed by clients and pimps. Prostitutes are despised by the public, harassed by police, and jailed as criminals.
TIME magazine in the Aug. 23, 1971 article "Reflections on the Sad Profession" stated:
"The whole subject of prostitution is full of ambiguities and hypocrisies. Even to define the word is not as easy as it might seem. We generally think of the transfer of money as the element that makes prostitution a crime (although money plays a subtle part in all sorts of sexual relationships). Yet in a number of states, as well as in Webster's newest dictionary, the definition of prostitution includes not only the exchange of money but also the rather vague concept of promiscuity... for example, forbid[ding] both getting paid for sex and 'the offering of the body for indiscriminate sexual intercourse without hire.' But what is 'indiscriminate'? St. Jerome decried women, who had known 'many men,' and monks argued over the number that would warrant condemnation; one said 40, another 23,000."
The way that sex workers are 80% female can't be ignored, nor should the way that a sizable segment of sex workers are pressured by physical methods or by financial hardship. Female prostitutes are bound to be assaulted or killed than some other population. One former prostitute recalls the violence she withstood both as a trafficking victim and as an independent contractor, stating: “I’ve been shot five times, stabbed 13 times – I don’t know why those men attacked me, all I know is that society made it comfortable for them to do so.”
At the point when the Netherlands legitimized prostitution in 1988, one of its fundamental goals was to shorten human dealing and the criminal prostitution undertaking. Despite best expectations, illicit houses of ill-repute still multiply and prostitution keeps on enduring maltreatment on account of pimps. Correspondingly, Nevada's unlawful prostitution industry is assessed to be around multiple times as huge as its legitimate undertaking. On the off chance that legitimization doesn't in truth secure prostitutes, at that point it demonstrates just a pessimistic income hotspot for the government.
