Sex work decriminalisation, NT and Vic

Monday, 2 December 2019 - 8:30am to 9:00am

The sex workers rights movement had a win with a bill for the decriminalisation of sex work in the Northern Territory passed on November 26th. Decriminalisation allows sex workers to access basic labour rights and protections as in other sectors. This week we hear from sex workers involved in campaigns for sex workers, first in the Northern Territory from Scarlet Alliance ATSI chair Desirae August, SWOP NT co-ordinator Leanne Melling and Sex Worker Reference Group member, Alison Woods; and later in Victoria with Jane Green from Vixen collective, after the announcement of an inquiry moving towards decriminalisation of sex work in Victoria.
