Program Description:
Prostitution & the Sex Trade 
What are the consequences – financially, emotionally, and socially – of prostitution? Should prostitution be legal or illegal?

Selling sex is legal in Denmark, Sweden, and the Netherlands, but each country has vastly different approaches and policies regarding sex work. Delve into how national cultures construct their own narratives about sex, gender, and rights, and how they grapple with conflicting views on sex for sale.
