On this episode, we’re travelling to Mainz, Germany, where the 3rd World Congress Against the Sexual Exploitation of Women and Girls took place early April 2019. It was hosted by CAP International, the Coalition for the Abolition of Prostitution. Ashani and Sophia, collective members at Vancouver Rape Relief, attended the congress and met with feminists from all around the world. They interviewed women from different abolitionist groups about prostitution laws in their country as well as their work for the abolition of prostitution.

At the 2018 edition last December, we invited local women to participate in a workshop on how to create a feminist podcast. We asked women some questions about their life as a women, and here’s is what they had to say.
