Prostitution is exploitation, abuse, rape and male entitlement to women's bodies. Sex 'work' is rape and shameless Woke culture there to benefit men.

Because making it safe and convenient for men to buy, sell, and use women is sad, evil, and barbaric.

Councils should not support the abuse of women. This should not need saying.

It isn't 'sex work'. There women and girls aren't 'service providers' , they are victims of sexual abuse and rape.

Target the customer - it's not safe for women, just punters.

We are also working in the USA to end "managed zones" and adopt the Nordic Model, which would provide the long term services that women need to exit prostitution, and increase arrests of men who think it is acceptable to buy the "right" to sexually abuse women.

I hate the whole notion of women being used as commodities and when I initially found out about this managed prostitution area I was horrified.
I was born in leeds, south of the river ie: the slum area. Leeds was a radical city in the late 1970s and through the 1980s in terms of feminist politics, many battles were fought on behalf of womens liberation and the council even had a women's committee!
Shame on them all especially the female leader of the council. There's a terrible irony here somewhere. Stop buying and selling women, there is no justification for it. The next thing will be managed brothels, furthering the control of those that want to profit from selling us for sex.
