The paper discusses how women can become empowered, insofar as they are self-regulated. But, the paper questions if they are empowered, or if they are simply developing new ways of operating under a different, less supportive framework. The paper explores if personal development has a positive impact on poverty in the long run or if it will change the way in which women are subjected to external power.

From the Paper:

"Hubbard et al explore the sociology of space surrounding sex workers in the European Union (EU), and the legislation which affects both their work and their perception within both their local community and the EU at large. By examining different legal structures surrounding street prostitution in particular, such as legalization in the Netherlands, prohibition in Sweden and abolition in the UK, the researchers determine that most countries in the EU are further exacerbating the divide between sex workers and the rest of society, potentially perpetuating the societal problems that prostitution is thought to cause."
