Do you wonder how to respond when people tell you it’s useless to fight sexual exploitation, since ”Prostitution is the oldest profession in the world”?

The European Women’s Lobby has produced an amazing resource this month, one that we encourage you to use and share. The new downloadable brochure ”18 Myths on Prostitution” is essential reference material for those of you who want to influence public opinion and policy in your city, country, or region.

18-myths
Although the EWL and its resource are not explicitly Christian, we share many values, starting with the belief that ’Human beings are priceless’, and should not be bought or sold.

As for the ’oldest profession’ remark, EWL observes, ”Just because something has existed for a long time doesn’t mean that it should or cannot be changed. We do not say ’murder has been around forever: we cannot do anything about it’.”
