Stella sets the record erm, straight?

CHECK out this open letter from Stella, with love (not) to the QC Council on the Status of Women. Among the highlights:

 

 

"We feel
neither included nor represented in the Quebec Council on the Status of
Women’s (CSF) denunciation of
the Ontario Superior Court ruling in favour of the decriminalization of
sex work.

The day
after the ruling, the CSF, a governmental body, issued a statement
strongly objecting to Justice Susan Himel’s decision and claiming that:
"Prostitution is the ultimate form of violence against women, of
degradation that undermines human dignity and it can certainly not be
condone.
"

We believe that
sex workers have the right to live and work safely, in an environment
free of violence and discrimination. Yet, current laws force sex workers
to work in dangerous conditions and compromise their access to police
protection, which in turn, renders them even more vulnerable to
violence."
