Last year more than 300 women were jailed because they were prostitutes - yet to be a prostitute is not an offence. Louise Webb , campaigner for prostitutes' rights, argues that the law should not discriminate against what it terms the ' common prostitute ', and that they should not be made the victims of society's hypocrisy. In
Birmingham, the City
