SIGN THIS PETITION TO STOP THE LEGALIZATION OF PROSTITUTION IN INDIA!

Help Save Prostituted Women in India! #Punishthepimp not the

Women!

There are three million girls and women trapped in prostitution in India. Most of them are between nine and thirteen years of age. The majority are from scheduled castes and backward classes-Dalits and OBCs. On an average they are raped by eight or ten customers a night.  The Chairperson of the National Commission for Women in India proposes to legalise  prostitution in India. This means not punishing the members of the sex-industry and their customers, which in turn means allowing the rape for profit of poor, low-caste, female, teean-agers with impunity. Join me in asking her to propose the punishment of their pimps, brothel keepers, recruiters, transporters, money-lenders, landlords, the penalizing of their clients and the de-criminalziing of the women. Let us shift the blame from the victim to the perpetrator. Let us not legalise the commodification women. Our bodies should not be on sale. #punishthepimp
