Submission to UN Women’s Consultation on Sex Work

“The Legal Network’s guiding values are rooted in a focus on the human rights of marginalized populations such as sex workers and their meaningful participation in policies and programs that affect them. We make this submission to UN Women to urge the agency to (1) engage in a transparent and inclusive consultation with sex workers in developing its policy on sex work and (2) ensure its policy respects, protects and fulfills the human rights of sex workers and recognizes their agency and self-determination.”
