Minority tri-partite coalition Party SV votes no to nakedness at its national congress.



In a piece of Norwegian political history, the vote to ban working as a stripper and strip clubs in general was unanimous.

Women’s policy spokesperson Marthe Hammer told tabloid Dagbladet that “We know that strip clubs often have girls from poor countries. Wages are often associated with how much alcohol they can sell to their customers and how much they are treated to.”

She argues higher alcohol consumption can also make it difficult for setting physical sexual behaviour limits.

“A report we received from a counselling service for men shows that prostitution takes place in Norwegian strip clubs. We also know that agents who have organized [bringing] strippers to Norway are accused of pimping.”

Deputy Party leader Bård Vegar Solhjell refers to that this veto is an extension of Norway’s anti sex purchase legislation.

In other women-oriented issues, 100 years since women got the vote in Norway, the Party voted in favour of compulsory military conscription, egg donation, and early ultrasound.

School meals, increased gym, a boost for day care facilities and their teachers, housing for all, extended supermarket hours for beer sales, increased state alcohol shops (Vinmonopolet), and permitting the use of hijabs in the police also got a yes, amongst other measures.

SV national congress delegates voted against oil drilling off Lofoten, and serving alcohol after 2am.

They were non-committal on a six-hour working day practise.
