Taking on the government's challenge that society needs to continue to deliberate on the decriminalisation of sex work, the Wits Centre for Ethics is hosting a debate entitled Should Consenting Adults be Allowed to Pay and be Paid for sex? Sex work is a morally and emotionally charged topic, and goes to the core of questions about ethics and the role of criminal law, gender roles, the private/public divide, as well as public health and policy.
The public and the media are invited to attend.
Panelists include Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge, Lucy Allais (Wits Philosophy Department), Eusebius McKaiser (Wits Centre for Ethics), Mickey Meji (National Co-ordinator of the Africa Sex Worker Alliance) and Anneke Meerkotter (Southern Africa Litigation Centre).
Event details are as follows:
Date: 18 July 2012
Time: 18:00-20:00 (refreshments from 5:30)
Venue: Senate Room, 2nd Floor, Senate House, East Campus
For media interviews please contact Dr Lucy Allais on 076 025 3224.
