Margareta Winberg, former Deputy Prime Minister of Sweden, stated at the Seminar on the Effects of Legalisation of Prostitution Activities in Stockholm on Nov. 5-6, 2002:

“I believe that we will never succeed in combating trafficking in women if we do not simultaneously work to abolish prostitution and the sexual exploitation of women and children. Particularly in light of the fact that many women in prostitution in countries that have legalised prostitution are originally victims of trafficking in women.”
