Prostitutes in France marched to the front National Assembly building in Paris, France to protest after a new law was passed that penalizes the patronage of prostitutes.The French parliament on Wednesday passed a law that now makes it illegal to pay for $ex in France making them the 5th European country ( after Sweden, Norway, Iceland and the U.K) in the world to criminalize prostitution.

Under the new law, pimping and brothels remain illegal, while it is legal to offer your body for sale but illegal for someone to buy it.

Offenders may be fined up to €3,750 (about$4,300)
and required to attend classes about the conditions
of $ex workers.

The law also establishes measures to help
prostitutes find new work, and makes it easier for
foreign $ex workers to acquire temporary
residency permits.

France’s Socialist government welcomed the new
legislation.

The bill’s architect
Maud Olivier told AFP: “This law is essential to
ending the idea that it is normal to buy someone’s
body.”

“The goal is to diminish [prostitution], protect
prostitutes who want to quit, and change
mentalities.

We will succeed in changing the
mentality, but new efforts are needed to raise
awareness, to train police officers and
magistrates.”

But some of France’s nearly 30,000 prostitutes did
not share Olivier’s conviction. About 60
demonstrators, including $ex workers, protested
the new law outside the Parliament, some carrying
a sign that read, “Don’t Liberate Me, I’ll Take Care of
Myself!”
