DEMAND CHANGE! SHORT FILM SCREENING AND PANEL DISCUSSION ON PROSTITUTION AND CLAUSE 14 (FORMERLY 13)
TOMORROW 6pm-7:30pm House of Commons
“I had to say I enjoyed it and that I chose it – it’s what the johns want to hear, and as a prostitute I existed for their pleasure, my body and words were there for their pleasure. The real me was effectively mute.”
The Demand Change! Campaign has worked with women who have been exploited through prostitution to produce a short film of video testimony exposing the reality of prostitution and trafficking. This hard-hitting film gives a voice to the silent and silenced majority who do not see prostitution as just another job and who call for urgent action to be taken to stop commercial sexual exploitation.
