Sex Workers’ Access to Justice
In November 2020, the English Collective of Prostitutes organised a ground-breaking event, Sex Workers: Access to Justice, which brought together sex workers, violence against women organisers, academics, and human rights groups to examine the extent of violence faced by sex workers, what exacerbates the risks of violence, and the obstacles experienced by sex workers when reporting violence to the police and accessing justice. This report records that information and the policy recommendations and campaigning strategies that emerged which would improve sex workers’ safety.
