UN Women has sent a call for “Consultation seeking views on UN Women approach to sex work, the sex trade and prostitution” to various advocacy groups.
The call states:
“Currently UN Women does not have an explicit policy position with regard to sex work, the sex trade or prostitution and is in the process of developing such a position.”
Recent papers by UN Women have left us deeply worried as to the understanding a number of women within this UN entity have of the sex industry.
The deadline for submissions is October 16, 2016.
“various people and groups, agencies and organizations which have an interest in this issue including: sex workers/ sex worker groups, survivors of prostitution and groups representing them, feminist and women’s rights organizations”
can be sent to email@example.com with the subject title “Written submission”
