PARIS---France s government is pushing one of
Europe s toughest laws against prostitution and sex
trafficking, and other countries are watching closely.
Advocates hope that a draft French law going to
parliament today will help change long-held atti-
tudes toward the world s oldest profession---by pun-
ishing the customer and protecting the prostitute.
The bill, however, is facing resistance in a country
with a libertine reputation and a Mediterranean macho
streak, and has prompted petitions defending those
who buy sex. Signatories include screen icon Catherine
Deneuve---who played a prostitute in the cult film
Belle de Jour---and crooner Charles Aznavour.
Prostitution is currently legal in France, but brothels,
pimping and soliciting in public are illegal.
The bill has prompted debate about sex and sexism
in France, where former International Monetary Fund
chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn is facing charges of
aggravated pimping. He denies wrongdoing, though
his lawyer has defended Strauss-Kahn s free-wheeling
sex life. It has also called attention to the evolution
of the sex business, as the number of foreign pros-
titutes, especially from Asia and eastern Europe, has
soared in recent years.
The proposed law would introduce a US$2,000
fine---rising at the second offense---for the clients of
prostitutes. They could also be forced to attend classes
aimed at highlighting the harms of prostitution.
The bill aims to decriminalise the estimated 40,000
prostitutes in France, by scrapping a 2003 law that
bans soliciting on the streets, and making it easier
for foreign prostitutes to remain legally in France if
they enter a process to get out of prostitution.
One of the bill s authors, Maud Olivier, says it s
about "getting rid the consequence of unequal and
archaic relationships between men and women."
Other countries such as Germany, Switzerland and
the Netherlands, where brothels are legal, are especially
interested in the French experience.
"If France moves, that could be the turning point
for other European countries," said Gregoire Thery,
secretary-general of the Mouvement du Nid, an
organisation which says it helps 5,000 prostitutes in
France each year.
The proposed law---written by a group of lawmakers
from both right and left and backed by the Socialist
government---follows the example of Sweden, which
passed similar legislation in 1999.
A report commissioned by the Swedish government
showed that the number of people involved in street
prostitution in Sweden s three largest cities dropped
from around 730 in 1999 to 300-430 a year in the
ten years after that.
At the same time, street prostitution in neigh-
France wants to
bouring Norway and Denmark increased. The Nether-
lands went the other way, legalising prostitution in
2000. But the policy has come in for criticism for
playing into the hands of criminals and human traf-
fickers who exploit women. The government is now
aiming to crack down on human trafficking by tight-
Supporters of the French draft law argue that it
could reduce sex trafficking and empower prosti-
"The current law is not on our side so we keep
being trapped in that system, and the client knows
that, he plays with that. When we hear about pros-
titution by choice, I think that it is still prostitution
as violence toward women, and we cannot keep tol-
erating that violence anymore," said Rosen Hicher,
57, who was a prostitute from 1988 to 2009.
"One day, a client told me: If you don t accept
to do it without condom, I will call the police, " she
told a news conference. "I was able to say to him:
clear off . But another one wouldn t because she
would be under control of a pimp or would be sold
by her husband, her father or her brother."
Opponents of the French bill argue the opposite,
and fear that cracking down will push prostitutes
into a dangerous position: Being forced to hide, they
would be even more at the mercy of pimps and
violent clients, and cut off from the organisations
able to help them.
"More clandestine practices means we would find
ourselves in more secluded places, and therefore sub-
ject to possible violence," Thierry Schaffauser, a 31-
year old escort and spokesman for sex workers group
Strass, told The Associated Press.
And in dealings with the client, he said, prostitutes
would "have less power because when you make less
profit, you might have to accept clients that you
wouldn t normally accept, accept doing something
you might not have accepted before."
A contentious open letter titled "Hands off my
whore" was released last month by a group of men,
including a lawyer for Strauss-Kahn, in favour of a
man s right to buy physical pleasure. (AP)
