DECRIMINALISATION OF SEX WORK - THE ONLY LEGAL ARRANGEMENT WHICH OFFERS DIGNITY TO WOMEN
We welcome the opportunity to input to the policy position of the most significant political party in South Africa, and to its Women’s League, on an issue of great importance to us and to many thousands of South Africans. We have designed our submission to be relevant, accurate and accessible – based on evidence which we have accessed and which we have collected from South Africa, or from places relevant to our South African experience. We are convinced that evidence-based policy decisions are vital in this area, which has been populated for too long by failed approaches based on ideology rather than reality.
