Despite the sensitivity and heterogeneity of the phenomenon, prostitution and sex work constitute an undeniably and highly gendered issue impacting women most particularly. Moreover, it affects certain groups in specific ways, including the socially and economically underprivileged, racialised and LGBTQI communities.
Although the moral and political dissension is challenging to overcome, it is evident that the commodification of women’s bodies is an inherently feminist – and therefore progressive – issue calling for a contrasted approach with tailored answers rather than a one-size-fits-all policy strategy.
This policy study offers a collection of contributions from gender experts with experience in academia, grass-roots communities, policymaking and activism. Although far from exhaustive on the question, it endeavours to map the complex nature related to the commodification of human bodies from a feminist perspective.
