Stop Channel 5 Broadcasting 'Respectable' sign now

We, the undersigned, believe that Channel 5s new sitcom, 'Respectable', due to be screened in August 2006, about women selling sex in a brothel as subject of humour is a gross misrepresentation of the lives of women involved in prostitution. The reality for most women involved in prostitution is coercion, extreme violence, drug dependency, homelessness, criminal records, rapes and beatings - not shoe collections and student loans.

In July 2006, two women in Shropshire were beaten to death in a brothel. By broadcasting a sitcom that makes selling sex in brothels appear funny, Channel 5 is glamorising an industry that exploits, degrades and ultimately kills women. This sitcom should be withdrawn immediately from schedules and shelved, never to be shown.

    I grew up in a red light area & know that women - as well as children - in prostitution are exploited & abused. Treating prostitution as a subject for ''entertainment'' trivialises and, in effect, condones violence and abuse. City and Country Lond
