Sex Trafficking


Frontline Women's Fund promotes the Equality Model of prostitution legislation, which decriminalizes prostituted women and girls and invests in exit strategies for survivors to leave the sex trade while penalizing pimps, brothel-owners, profiteers and sex buyers. Variously known as the Equality Model, Swedish/Nordic Model, and partial decriminalization, this approach was first spearheaded by Sweden in 1999 and has steadily gained traction since. The Equality Model has been adopted by Canada, France, Iceland, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Norway and Sweden.

“The idea of prostitution as sex work is insulting offensive nonsense. What was happening to us in the brothels and red light zones wasn’t work or anything remotely resembling work. It was compensated sexual violation. That is how we experienced it. That is how we lived it. That is what we suffered from.”

| Rachel Moran, Founder of SPACE International, Survivor Leader


Launched in 2018, Frontline Women's Fund’s Gloria Steinem Equality Fund to End Sex Trafficking supports front line women’s rights activists who promote and advocate for the adoption of the Equality Model.
