Show Notes:

Meghan Murphy explores issues and debates around prostitution, specifically looking at the abolition argument -- the idea that we identify trafficking and prostitution as violence against women. Featuring interviews with Trisha Baptie, who is the the executive director of Honour Consulting & Ministries and a founding member of EVE: Formerly Exploited Voices Educating, as well as two of the women involved in the making of a documentary called Our Lives to Fight For, a film which aims to break down myths about prostitution and decriminalization and argues for a Canadianized version of the Nordic Model.
