UN Women is currently undergoing a consultation which seeks views on sex work, the sex trade, and prostitution. All are invited to make their own personal response and /or NGO response to UN Women by 16 October, 2016.
Angela Reed rsm is currently preparing a response on behalf of Mercy Global Action at the UN, focussing largely on what formerly trafficked women say about these terms and the importance of listening to these voices. The MGA response will argue that the term ‘sex work’ conceals the abusive and exploitative nature that many formerly prostituted women experience. Please feel free to send Sr Angelaany comments or suggestions which you wish to be considered for inclusion in the statement before10 October.
