Turn Off the Red Light - End Prostitution and Sex Trafficking in Ireland

turnofftheredlight header

Turn Off The Red Light is a campaign to end prostitution and sex trafficking in Ireland. It is being run by a new alliance of civil society organisations. Trafficking women and girls for the purposes of sexual exploitation is a modern, global form of slavery. We believe that the best way to combat this is to tackle the demand for prostitution by criminalising the purchase of sex.

Fondation Scelles, France


Fondation Scelles believes that any person should live without having recourse to prostitution. Fondation Scelles thinks that prostitution is a violation of human rights, equality and dignity, and a source for social and personal violence. We are abolitionist and engage against the exploitation of prostituted persons, notably in the framework of trafficking in human beings. We believe that education, prevention, awareness raising, and the sanctioning of people who exert violence against prostituted persons, are key to develop a comprehensive policy.

End Prostitution Now, Scotland, UK

stop demand

End Prostitution Now is a campaign led by Glasgow City Council which aims to raise awareness of the harm caused through prostitution and put the focus on the buyers of sex - the DEMAND - who have in the past been invisible from public debate. We believe that it is the demand which fuels the sex industry in Glasgow and, only by targeting this demand and challenging attitudes towards buying sex, will we be able to put a stop to this harmful activity which blights cities and towns across Scotland.

The Anti Porn Men Project, UK

anti porn men project logo for web

The Anti Porn Men Project is an online space for (mainly) men to write about and discuss anti-porn issues. The Project also provides and sign-posts anti-porn resources and news concerning pornography. It is the general opinion of those involved in The Anti Porn Men Project that pornography is one of the most important social issues that we face in tackling both violence against women and wider gender inequality, as well as an important personal issue in the lives and relationships of many people. It is for these reasons -and not out of any conservative or religious sentiments- that The Anti Porn Men Project is anti-porn. Our mission is to help develop a wider knowledge and recognition of the harms of pornography. We hope this will help bring about a greater level of both personal and public questioning of pornography.

UK Feminista, UK

ukfeminista logo

UK Feminista supports people to campaign for a world where women and men are equal. Why? Because despite massive advances in the status of women, gender inequality remains rife in the UK and across the world.
We believe that political, economic and social equality between women and men is possible – and it is a world that will be better for all. But progress doesn’t just ‘happen’. It takes ordinary women and men to stand up and be counted and create the world they want to live in. Our aim is to inspire and enable people to do just that.

OBJECT is the leading human rights organisation challenging ‘sex object culture’ - the increased sexual objectification of women in the media and popular culture. It does this by campaigning against the mainstreaming of the sex and porn industries through things like lads’ mags, lap dancing, Page 3, and the glamorisation of prostitution. This is crucial because of the role ‘sex object culture’ plays in reinforcing sexism and legitimising attitudes which underpin inequality and violence against women.

OBJECT launched the Demand Change! Campaign in partnership with Eaves in 2009 to tackle demand for prostitution - the most extreme form of objectification and commodification.
