Sex Work and Human Rights Media Toolkit

2019-11-05T17:10:56+00:00September 23rd, 2019|

The materials in this kit seek to try to counter the prejudice, stereotypes and general misinformation that stand in place of accuracy about the circumstances of sex work and the people engaged in it. The rights to life, safety, free speech, political action and access to information and to basic health and education services are as important to sex workers as to anyone else. No one should lose these human rights because of the work they do.
