China's openness to the world and the increasing individualization of its population have resulted in a resurgence of prostitution, trafficking in women, and related sexual offenses.
The Chinese government has continuously passed laws and escalated its efforts to control illicit sexual activity, in particular against prostitution and pandering, to the point of « whore wars. » Coincident with state-sanctions and containment efforts has been a rise in aggressive, and not uncommonly, violent, punitive behavior against those who traffick in women and against prostitution as an organized activity.
This paper reviews official reports, news, and case histories in an effort to ascertain legitimization of aggressive behavior by the State, and show how the State constructs such legal rationales in light of China's socialist moral stance.
