A policy to protect the human rights of sex workers…

safety-for-sex-workersAs a very relevant article to my novel, Life Before, which involves the sex industry in the early twentieth century, here is a very thought provoking article by Amnesty International entitled Sex Worker’s Rights are Human Rights which discusses their efforts to protect the rights of sex workers, trying to ensure their health and safety.

What we want is a refocussing of laws to tackle acts of exploitation, abuse and trafficking – rather than catch-all offences that only criminalize and endanger sex workers.

Surely a very controversial subject, but one that needs our attention and discussion.
