Partial Text: Masenior and Beyrer’s article is an important contribution to the continuing debate as to the direction of public health efforts regarding commercial sex work . The authors are correct in that the debate between those focused on the social and economic rights of prostituted women and girls as “workers” and those focused on preventing the trafficking of women and girls into prostitution has resulted in precious little dialogue on how to best proceed.
