Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
"We would not want these results [of their research] to add to the difficulties of these women. We recall the comment by [George Bernard] Shaw in his lengthy preface to Mrs Warren's Profession that he wrote the play 'to draw attention to the truth that prostitution is caused, not by female depravity and male licentiousness, but simply by underpaying, undervaluing and overworking women'."
Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry, Feb. 2001
Experts Individuals with MDs, JDs, PhDs, individuals with graduate degrees and significant post-graduate involvement in fields relevant to the study of prostitution, and government officials with significant involvement in, or related to, prostitution issues.
