The Women’s Equality Coalition intervenes in this appeal (Canadian Alliance for Sex Work Law Reform et al. v. Attorney General of Canada) to argue that the Charter of Rights and Freedoms supports the ability of Parliament to use its criminal law power to discourage and deter the purchase of women to satisfy men’s sexual demands. The prostitution industry, in Canada and around the world, is sexist, racist, classist and colonialist. It legitimizes male violence against women and other forms of inequality in the pursuit of economic profit.
