The legalization of prostitution is something that is often promoted as a way to make the industry ‘safer’ for women, a concept that is challenged by feminists who believe that prostitution can never be safe and exists in opposition of the goal of creating a feminist and egalitarian society.

Meghan Murphy interviews feminist journalist Julie Bindel, who participated in the making of a documentary called “Love for Sale: a journey to the legal brothels of Nevada” which aired in November 2011 on BBC Leeds. Julie also wrote a corresponding article about her experiences in Nevada for the London Times.

This interview took place on November 20, 2011 and originally aired on Vancouver Co-op Radio.
