No bad women
The case for the decriminalisation of sex work
3rd May 2021
There are no bad women, just bad laws. The English Collective of Prostitute’s Cari Mitchell argues for the decriminalisation of sex work, and explores the powerful role that outdated laws play in fostering a culture of violence against sex workers.
Cari Mitchell is a spokeswoman for the English Collective of Prostitutes, a network of women working in different areas of the sex industry – both on the streets and indoors, which campaigns for decriminalisation of sex work and for sex workers’ safety.
