There are many issues within Canada that are controversial to gender policing within society. The first topic that I looked into was the controversies regarding women and their rights and freedoms of choosing prostitution has their lifestyle. A women who chooses prostitution as her lifestyle is usually put down by society due to the ideology that prostitution is a sinful and disgraceful act that should be abounded from society.
