No Amnesty Day of Global Action

No Amnesty Day of Global Action

Today, Zero Tolerance is supporting the “No Amnesty Day of Global Action”. We believe that Amnesty International has got it wrong on prostitution by supporting full decriminalisation of the sex trade. We hope that the current debate will enable a conversation about a new approach in Scotland, that starts from questioning why men buy sex.

Prostitution law reform - what about the men?

Prostitution law reform - what about the men?

The debate around prostitution too often makes men who have power, privilege and free choices invisible, whilst pitting women against each other, creating an undue focus on how much individual women ‘chose’ to be involved. But prostitution is not individual – it is structural.  If the current debate achieves anything, it ought to bring the men who buy sex out of the shadows and ask why they think it is acceptable.
