European Parliament's Gender Equality Committee Recommends Punishing Clients of Prostitutes, Not Prostitutes Themselves

How about not punishing anyone for consensual behavior??


The European Parliament's Women's Rights and Gender Equality Committee has voted through a report that recommends the adoption of the 'Nordic Model' of prostitution laws.

Put forward by Mary Honeyball, Labour MEP for London, the report recommends the EU takes on the Swedish model of prostitution laws, which punishes the clients of prostitutes, rather than the sex workers themselves.
