Ted Talk: The Laws That Sex Workers Really Want

Ben Manchester

Recommended Posts

Here's an interesting TED Talk by Toni Mac:



Everyone has an opinion about how to legislate sex work (whether to legalize it, ban it or even tax it) ... but what do workers themselves think would work best? Activist Toni Mac explains four legal models that are being used around the world and shows us the model that she believes will work best to keep sex workers safe and offer greater self-determination. "If you care about gender equality or poverty or migration or public health, then sex worker rights matter to you," she says. "Make space for us in your movements." (Adult themes)

We'll have to see who becomes our new PM first. If it's one of the staunch christians, like that right-winger Stephen Crab from CARE, then I imagine this report will quietly disappear.

CARE are the organisation driving the House of Lords Bill to criminalise the advertising of prostitution. They have supporting staff all over government at the moment and are also pushing to make it a criminal offence to purchase sexual services (the Norway model).
