NSWP Submission to European Parliament re Report on Sex Work


NSWP submitted this letter to Members of the European Parliament as they prepared to discuss the report, “Regulation of prostitution in the EU: its cross-border implications and impact on gender equality and women’s rights, 2022/2139(INI)”. 

The report, from the Committee on Women’s Rights and Gender Equality will be put to a vote in plenary on 14th September 2023.

NSWP called on all Members of the European Parliament to reject and to vote against the report.  

In order to support the human rights of sex workers, the European Parliament must vote against this report and the call for an EU-wide approach based on the so-called “Nordic/Equality Model” and instead recommend that member states take measures to fully decriminalise all aspects of sex work, including the purchase of sexual services.
