SORT BY Relevancy
Because sex work is criminalized in the United States, sex workers facea much higher risk of crime both violent and non violent. Violent because clients know they can get away with harming sex workers with little repercussion. Although the internet evens that out a bit as they can now be exposed for who they are. Nonetheless criminalization kills. Men also know they can do nefarious things such as short the escort on her money and she has no recourse either in a violent or non violent crime of legal intervention by the police.
Join Jill Brenneman, Amanda Brooks, and sex worker guests on tonight's episode. It's the International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers. Sex workers around the world are holding memorial vigils. This year's list of names will be read, and we will have a roundtable discussion of violence against sex workers, and the worst thing of all -- when a sex worker is killed because they are a sex worker.
