Petra Östergren, MA Biography

Title:
Author
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
Reasoning:

“I have been concerned by the fact that the very women who are at the center of prostitution policy are so rarely heard and so often feel discriminated against. If equal rights for women is important, then the experience of sexworkers themselves must surely be central to our discussion, regardless of what position one takes on prostitution.”
