Stuff reports:

University of Otago, Christchurch Associate Professor Gillian Abel, who has studied sex work in New Zealand for two decades, says Julie Bindel denies women actively choose to do sex work. For a 2007 study, Abel interviewed 772 sex workers from around the country and found 73 per cent worked for the money, 87 per cent regularly visited the doctor but only half announced their occupation, and 60 per cent thought the police cared for their safety.
