Clare Nolan Biography

Title:
NGO representative of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd to the United Nations
Position:
Con to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
Reasoning:

“I recommend an application of the current Swedish policies which criminalizes those who prostitute women but do not criminalize the woman who is prostituted…

Socially I recommend that public schools adopt curricula that build in gender relations and gender economics in… all aspects of education, including critique and evaluation of functions of patriarchal (male dominated) structures.

I recommend public service campaigns (including sports jocks) that denounce violence against women in all forms.

Personally, I recommend all citizens to engage in discussion is [sic] in family and personal social circles, attitudes and practices about sexuality. Discuss stag parties, date rape, date violence and men and boys demand for women to be prostituted.”
