SOMETHING SENSIBLE FINALLY COMES OUT OF BERKELEY.
Supporters seek decriminalization of prostitution, as opposed to legalization, the route taken in Nevada, the only state that permits prostitution, though only in regulated brothels in certain counties.
"This needs to be seen as a women's rights issue and a public health and safety issue," said Ms. Few, adding that prostitutes are often threatened with violence but cannot go to the police without risking arrest.
