Former Lead Expert on the Nordic Model Policy at the Organization for Prostitution Survivors
Con to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
"This paper argues that Washington State, and the city of Seattle in particular, is an important US case study site for the introduction of a new legal and social service model similar to the Nordic model...
In contrast to both criminalization and legalization/decriminalization frameworks, the Nordic model is premised on the understanding that women's equity depends on excising structural barriers that preclude women's full economic, social, and political inclusion. A core component of the Nordic model is the prohibition of the purchase of sexual services law. This law asymmetrically criminalizes buyers of prostitution and third-party profiteers (pimps and brothel owners), while maintaining the decriminalization of individuals sold in prostitution."
