Anti-prostitution feminism refers to feminist activism focused on ending women's exploitation through the sex trade. Anti-prostitution feminists support the Nordic Model, which sees prostitution as being inherently exploitative and an affront to women's human rights. Notable anti-prostitution feminists include Melissa Farley, Rachel Moran, Andrea Dworkin, Julie Bindel, Sheila Jeffreys, and Gail Dines. Anti-prostitution overlaps with anti-pornography feminism, which focuses on the harms of the pornography industry, including the effects of pornographic media on society.
