La Rue Saint-Denis

rue st denis

Metro : Strasbourg-St-Denis. 2nd arrondissement.
In the mid-1970s, Paris's prostitutes demonstrated in churches, monuments and public squares, demanding unionization. They marched down rue St-Denis, the central artery of the city's prostitution district, to picket for equal rights and protection under the law. Their campaign was successful and prostitution is now legal in france. Officially, sx workers are still not allowed to work the streets, and only the prostitutes themselves can use the money they earn on the job. This creates a problem, since even if a woman uses her earnings to support her family, her husband can be prosecuted as a procurer. Despite its legalization, however, prostitution in France is far less common than in the Netherlands or Thailand. except, of course, along rue St-Denis, an enclave of debauchery and a place that sx shops and sketchy clubs call home, in the otherwise G-rated 2ème.
