Iceland to Ban Stripping and Prostitution

From the Iceland Review Online

Minister of Social Affairs Ásta Ragnheidur Jóhannesdóttir presented an action plan against human trafficking yesterday, which includes placing bans on operating strip clubs and purchasing sexual services.

It is hoped that the ban will take effect before the parliamentary elections on April 25.

“Human trafficking is the most disgusting form of international and organized crime that exists in the world,” Jóhannesdóttir said while presenting the 25-point action plan, Fréttabladid reports.

    Bravo! Iseland, Norway and Sweden provide a model for us in Canada in challenging an industry that preys on the poorest and most discriminated of women.
