She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Talk: The Nordic Model of Prostitution

When: Tuesday, May 6th, 7pm
Where: Powerful Schools, 3401 Rainier Ave S
Free registration

What could be gained by decriminalizing the people exploited by commercial sex?
The Nordic Model criminalizes the exploiters and third-party profiteers of prostitution: buyers, procurers, pimps and traffickers. The law simultaneously decriminalizes those exploited in the prostitution industry: mainly women and youth.

How does the Nordic Model stand up in comparison to other prostitution regimes? What are critiques of the Nordic Model? Could this model be brought to Washington State? Please join Ane Mathison and Easton Branam on Tuesday, May 6th to learn more about their research on the impacts and possibilities of the Nordic model.

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
