Open Letter

On the 13th of April, the FondationScelles submitted an open letter to the Secretary of State for Equality between Women and Men. In that letter, we recognize the effort made by the government to help persons in prostitution by extending residency permits and exit programmes.

In that letter, we recognize the effort made by the government to help persons in prostitution by extending residency permits and exit programmes.

  • We request an urgent financial aid to help lift people out of poverty and the implementation of existing laws against online pimping.
  • We express our concern about the situation that puts already vulnerable women at further risk.
  • We condemn the websites facilitating the online sexual exploitation of women and children.

On a more positive note, what the lockdown has demonstrated is that it is possible to curb demand for prostitution, in fact, with political will it is possible to do so immediately. Prostitution is neither sex nor work; neither essential nor inevitable. Access to decent work and real opportunities though remains essential.
