Episode Summary

Sex Workers
(1/22/2013) An investigation into how two European countries, Holland and Sweden, are using drastically different methods to deal with the world’s oldest profession. Prostitution has never been illegal in the Netherlands provided it was voluntary, but in 2000 sex work became regulated. The government set rules about where and how sex work was done – treating it just like any other profession. The idea was that prostitution was an everyday reality, so why not bring it out in the open to help protect women and prevent human trafficking. About the same time the Dutch decided to legalize prostitution, Sweden took a very different and novel approach. Their goal was to eliminate prostitution for good by targeting the buyer -- target the men and you eliminate demand. Eliminate demand and you eliminate prostitution. We take a look at how well each method is working.moreless
