Abstract

The article discusses prostitution and its societal and political implications in Western Australia with regards to the Prostitution Act 2011. It references a novel by Iris Marion Young to define injustice, domination, and structural oppression. The author believes that the Act may create social stigmas between the society and the prostitutes. Also discussed is the Möbius strip model as a method to identify the relationship between the body and mind.
