Fernandez de Kirchner Takes a Stand Against Sex Ads
Earlier this month, Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner passed a law banning classified ads offering sex in Argentine newspapers. Many of these ads are not consenting adults, but rather trafficked women and girls being sold for sex.
Kirchner scolded the media for their “double morals and hypocrisy,” saying that “newspapers can’t print headlines demanding that we fight human trafficking, while their back pages present ads that humiliate women.”
Perhaps those within the Beltway can learn from Kirchner’s example and start tackling this problem in American newspapers and websites.
