France debates prostitution
Issued on: Modified:
The French Parliament is debating legislation to criminalise punters rather than prostitutes. We take a look at several petitions that oppose the legislation. Also, prostitutes and former prostitutes are having their say on the matter in the media - we take a look at their varying opinions. Finally, we look at a film by François Ozon which was screened at Cannes earlier this year. "Young and Beautiful" portrays a high school student from a bourgeois background who chooses to become a prostitute.
