Buying Sex: The Other Side of the Story – Hearing Women’s Voices
Tuesday, April 15
Alice MacKay Room
Vancouver Public Library, Central Branch, 350 Georgia St
On April 15 join us for a screening of the film Buying Sex at the Vancouver Public Library. The film explores the state of prostitution laws in Canada by listening to the voices of experiential women, policy-makers, lawyers and men who buy sex. Additionally it examines countries such as Germany, New Zealand and Sweden to better understand what is at stake and what other countries have done regarding prostitution.
After the film we will hear from several people featured in the documentary, as well as legal interveners in the Supreme Court case Canada v. Bedford. REED is proud to sponsor the event along with Asian Women Coalition Ending Prostitution (AWCEP), formerly Exploited Voices now Educating (EVE), Indigenous Women Against the Sex Industry (IWASI) and Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter.
