Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CATW)

Blessed Sacrament Province (U.S.)

New York, December 1, 2014 - The Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CATW) applauds the legislatures of Canada and Ireland for their historic passage of laws that respectively target the demand for prostitution or buyers of sex, and decriminalize prostituted individuals. They follow in the footsteps of Sweden, Norway and Iceland, which passed a set of laws, known as the "Nordic Model,” that penalizes the purchase of sex, exempts prostituted individuals from punishment and recognizes prostitution as a cause and consequence of gender violence and discrimination.
