Abolish Prostitution!

I found this picture on femalestruggle, unfortunately, she doesn’t say where and when it comes from. The Asian Women Coalition Ending Prostitution can be found here and here.

EDIT: More info from easilyriled in the comments below:

this was the last day of the Women’s Worlds conference held in Ottawa in July of 2011. the organizers of this display were national coalition of women’s groups including the Canadian Association of Elizabeth Fry Societies; the Canadian Association of Sexual Assault Centres; Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter; La Cles in Montreal; Aboriginal Women’s Action Network; and the Coaltion Against Trafficking of Women (CATW). Collaborators also included feminist activists from Korea, Japan, Haiti, the US and Mexico. Most of the women on the steps participated in the Flesh Mapping conversations that took place each afternoon–women from all over the world told about their resistance against men’s violence and the exploitation of prostitution.
