This week Sara speaks to Niki and Laura from the English Collective of Prostitutes, which campaigns for decriminalisation and safety of sex work, about politicians, the police, and the current laws affecting sex work around the world.
Niki Adams and Laura Watson are spokeswomen for the English Collective of Prostitutes, a national organisation of sex workers working both on the streets and indoors which campaigns for decriminalisation and safety. They oppose austerity cuts and fight for housing and other survival resources so that women can leave prostitution if and when they want and highlight the fact that most sex workers are mothers trying to do the best for their family. The ECP provides daily support to sex workers and has won important legal precedents including cases which have helped establish sex workers’ right to the protection of the law against rape and other violence.
They are frequently called on to provide expert testimony to politicians, the media, and others on decriminalisation and the impact of current laws and policies.
