NSWP Mark International Sex Workers’ Day with New Illustrated Consensus Statement


The NSWP Consensus Statement on Sex Work, Human Rights, and the Law details eight fundamental rights that sex worker-led groups from around the world identify as crucial targets for their activism and advocacy. These eight rights, if fully realised, would be a huge step towards safeguarding sex workers' human rights, labour rights, and health.

To mark International Sex Workers’ Day 2021, NSWP have published a new summary Consensus Statement with images by Glasgow-based visual artist Molly Hankinson. Each image represents one of the eight fundamental rights from the Consensus Statement.

International Sex Workers’ Day is held annually on 2nd June to mark the 1975 occupation of Saint-Nizier Church in Lyon, France, by around 100 sex workers, protesting their criminalised and exploitative living conditions. Sex workers continue to mark the day every year with events and actions calling for fulfilment of their rights.
