Amy Richards Biography

Title:
Co-Founder of the Third Wave Foundation
Position:
Pro to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
Reasoning:

“I think that prostitution should be legalized because then it will be less ghettoized as a profession and prostitutes can begin to organize for things such as: health benefits, better wages, better working conditions, etc… Also, I don’t think it can be improved until it is ‘credible.'”
