The Framing of Gender Apartheid: Amnesty International and Prostitution 10/13/15

Imagine a world were the buying and selling of women was so ubiquitous, that it was normalized. Imagine having to have to fuck your way out of poverty, in a world of never ending poverty or having to fuck your way toward liberation.  This article below asks good questions:

By Taina Bien-Aime, Executive Director, Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CATW)

What would happen if every country decriminalized prostitution? Not just the few that have already disastrously done so, but what if every government legitimized pimps and brothel owners and failed to hold men accountable for purchasing human beings for sex? Would the United Nations and its member states launch a #2050 Agenda for Investing in the Sex Trade as a Solution and Sustainable Development for Women and Girls, Especially the Most Indigent?

What marketing slogans would ensue? Might public agencies launch poverty alleviation campaigns? “First Nations, Indigenous, Aboriginal, African-Americans and Global South Populations: Are you Poor, Young, Incested, Transgendered, Homeless? With our help, the Sex Trade will provide you with shelter, food, free condoms and the opportunity to contribute to your (or a foreign) country’s Gross National Product. No experience or education required.”

These are not teasers for Margaret Atwood’s next novel, but a concept set forth byAmnesty International, one of the most prominent and respected human rights organization in the world.  For more information: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/taina-bienaime/the-framing-of-gender-apa_b_8273268.html
