Stopping Prostitution Carders on December 8

Two days ago, on December 8, the White Ribbon Campaign joined the Greater London Authority, the Metropolitan Police, and Eaves to tackle prostitution by tearing down the cards in telephone boxes advertising prostitution. This is an important step in tackling prostitution and trafficking. Prostitution is a form of violence against women. It is also an issue of child abuse as 75% of women in prostitution became involved when they were children (Women's Resource Centre, 2008). The White Ribbon Campaign is proud to be part of this campaign to end prostitution and trafficking.

From L to R: Kit Malthouse (Deputy Mayor for Policing), Detective Chief Superintendent Richard Martin (MPS Clubs and Vice Unit), and Detective Inspector Kevin Hyland (MPS Clubs and Vice Unit).
Part of the crowd of volunteers and police gathered before dividing up to de-card different areas of Westminster.
