[Brussels, 11 November 2014] From 5 to 7 December, the city of Munich will gather dozens of activists, decision-makers, survivors and artists, calling for a society free from prostitution. The international Congress for the Abolition of prostitution "Stop Sexkauf" is organised by the women’s organisations KOFRA, NetzwerkB, SPACE International and Abolition2014, and supported by more than 25 organisations from all over Europe and beyond.
The Congress will gather speakers from different countries, to share their experience of and views on the expanding sex industry in Europe. The programme will be very rich, with an analysis of the situation in Germany, which has legalised brothels since 2002: German politicians, justice and police professionals, media professionals will discuss the functioning of the German model and its impacts on women and girls. The European Women’s Lobby will present its campaign ’Together for a Europe free from prostitution’ and the actions of the Brussels’ Call, a European abolitionist mobilisation for a change in Europe, towards real equality between women and men.
