Karina Content is the pseudonym of Karina Schaapman (born 6 June 1960 in Leiden), a Dutch writer and politician affiliated with the Labour Party (Netherlands).[1]

In 2005 Amma Asante (also a councilor for the Labour Party (Netherlands)) and Content, wrote a report, "Het onzichtbare zichtbaar gemaakt" (Making the Invisible Visible). Schaapman had once been a prostitute and was getting information about the influx of organized crime and violence into Prostitution in the Netherlands. Other reports came out around the same time. They concluded that a large number of prostitutes in Amsterdam were being forced to work and were being abused by pimps and criminal gangs, and that the goals of legalization were failing.[2][3]
