The Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CATW) in the "About Us" section of its website (accessed Jan. 25, 2007) stated:

“All prostitution exploits women, regardless of women’s consent.

Prostitution affects all women, justifies the sale of any woman, and reduces all women to sex.

Our challenge, in opposition to the enormous power and resources of the sex industry that portrays prostitution as sexual liberation, work or even glamorous, has been to make the harm of prostitution visible.”
