Launch of KNOW YOUR RIGHTS: An A-Z for sex workers
As cuts in welfare, housing and other survival resources force more women and young people into prostitution, arrests, prosecutions and convictions are soaring. This timely guide to the prostitution laws aims to ensure that sex workers are better able to protect themselves from violence and criminalisation, and that families, supporters and the public generally are better informed about the unjust laws that are passed in their name.
