Infographic: Sex Workers’ Lack of Access to Justice


This infographic summarises the Briefing Paper on Sex Workers’ Lack of Access to Justice.

Sex workers around the world face a wide range of barriers to accessing justice, both as victims of crime and when charged with crimes. Since sex work is widely criminalised, most sex workers are denied access to the benefits and rights afforded to other workers under labour laws and face the risk of criminalisation, detention, deportation and legal sanction.

NSWP infographics are tools for sex workers' advocacy worldwide. They contain images created by Molly Hankinson.

You can download this infographic above in English, and it is also available in French, Russian, Spanish and Chinese. A print-friendly version is also available above if you would like to print the infographics as a short A5 booklet on A4 paper.
