The PSOE declares for the first time in favor of aboling prostitution

In full struggle on the left by leadership - and the feminist movement, the PSOE will take a step more taking advantage of the framework of its 40th Federal Congress celebrating this weekend in Valencia. It will be the first time that Pedro Sánchez's party is formally declared abolitionist from prostitution. A commitment that will be sealed in writing in the political presentation that will mark the ideological course of the coming years.

It is, above all, an approach that can open a new gap in the coalition government with United Can we, with which it has already faced the recent Trans Law. In fact, on paper, the debate should lead him who directs the Ministry of Equality, that is, Irene Montero. However, the United Minister of Unidas can already resigned in his day to do so, aware of the division that exists - also in this topic - among the feminist collectives themselves.

That the PSOE wants to promote now the abolition of prostitution does nothing but put pressure on Montero, who is personally declared in favor of the abolition but reluctant to address the issue since its department, so as not to open a melon that would threaten to stress. Your own training.

The minister has already dropped that legislation in that sense is not easy either. "The abolition of prostitution can not be just a slogan," was the message that Montero recently launched. Even so, the first version of the Socialists' paper collects textually that the PSOE, "as an abolitionist party," must be "the impeller of the necessary political and social consensus" that allows "the eradication of trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation and Prostitution "

"Abolish prostitution is a process that must be marked by legislative initiatives and social changes, while requiring effective public policies that offer an output to women and make prostitution a practice of the past."

Now, it is precisely the host federation, the Valencian, the one who will press this Saturday in the debate of the amendments to harden the written and not leave a doubt of the PSOE's commitment, which is requested concrete deadlines.

What valencian socialists claim is that the party is committed "in this legislature" to present a "comprehensive law for the abolition of prostitution, a law that has to protect and care for victims, punish prostitutes and proxientes, as well as How to punish all kinds of prosenetism ".

In any case, the Vice-secretary General of the PSOE, Adriana Lastra, already warned at the inauguration of the Congress that the abolition of prostitution is not reduced only to the legislative level. "It is a measure that the federal direction shares, and now what we do is deepen that abolition, but it is not only to put an article in a law but to give resources for victims of sexual exploitation and treat those victims."

The debate of feminism will undoubtedly go through Congress. And not without controversy, because the so-called classical feminism, headed in the PSOE by the former Vice President of the Carmen Carmen Government, has been mobilized in recent days to try to amend the confusion that in his opinion is generated in the presentation framework with use Indistinct of the concepts of "sex" and "gender" and, what in his opinion is even more serious, because of the predilection for this second term to the detriment of the first.

Indeed, the base text of the PSOE is dotted with references to gender inequality, gender gap, gender perspective, gender stereotypes, gender studies. A deletion of the woman who "invisibilizes the cause of discrimination between women and men," an amendment points out.

This approach of classical feminism is radically faced with the most modern queer theory, whose postulates shares can and are the ones that were over imposing in trans. That is, in the norm with which Montero won the pulse to Calvo and who revived the feminist war within the PSOE.
