Seventh World Congress on Women’s Mental Health Dublin 2017

Hello

I spent three days in the women’s congress and I really enjoyed it. I learned a lot and my mind has been changed on one important matter.

I used to be pro legalizing prostitution. I thought legalizing it meant better conditions for the women, more education and a way out if they wanted it. I discovered that in Germany they are in worst conditions and remain prisoners of male demand. I recommend Ingeborg’s website advocating for de-legalizing prostitution in Germany:

www.trauma-and-prostitution.eu

“15 years after adoption of the legalization of prostitution in Germany, evaluating the impact on and the consequences for women´s mental health”, Dr. Ingeborg Kraus – DGTD, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Trauma und Dissoziation. (German society for Trauma and Dissociation), Germany.

These are all the talks I went to:
