Objectives:
Prostitution in Rome was socially accepted, the lenones were persecuted and their commercial activity and illegal exploitation that vilified women in a situation of vulnerability, a phenomenon that is a historical constant and that unfortunately today continues to reproduce, despite of the remarkable progress in the fight for networks of organized prostitution.In the present papier we will approach the figure of the meretrix from the point of view of a vulnerable group that performed an office under the "double moral" necessary to preserve the purity of the midwives, although it was socially marginalized when it was labelled as disgracefull. We will also see the exploitation suffered by many vulnerable women who were deceived and sexually exploited in brothels and private homes in a criminal network organized by pimps against which, as just like today, we had to fight with measures that the Roman administration undertakes to protect and finish of the sexual market

Material and methods:
The method used is the historical-critical with the analysis of legal and literary sources that refer to the prostitutes in Roman Law

Results:
There is a continuous struggle against organized prostitution from the Roman Law to the present, it is a historical constant

Conclusions:
Observe how there is a parallel between a problem in the past and how, unfortunately, it survives in current law
