The role of sports events in the commodification of women

Plenary sessions

About the event:

Time & Date
June 3rd

10:00 AM

Major sporting events frequently generate a concentration of male tourists, fostering a masculinist atmosphere. Many of them have triggered a spike in demand for the purchase of sex acts, representing an opportunity for pimps and traffickers.

In this panel, officials, journalists, advocates and frontline workers will share their analysis and initiatives to prevent the commodification of women in the perspective of the upcoming Formula 1 Grand Prix of Montréal, the Paris Olympic Games and the European Football Championship in Germany.

The speakers for this discussion:

Julie Bindel

Writer, journalist and feminist activist

Jennie-Laure Sully

Concertation des luttes contre l’exploitation sexuelle (CLES)

Kerstin Neuhaus

Bündnis Nordisches Modell

Shirley Wirden

Deputy Mayor of Paris Center in charge of Equality
