Women’s Health West endorses this submission by our peak body GEN VIC. This submission supports the voices of peer-led sex work organisations, prioritization of health and safety of sex workers, and a feminist, human rights and worker-centred approach to sex work.
It calls for reform of the failing licencing system, and has several key recommendations. These include the Victorian Government working in partnership with peer-led sex work organisations throughout the legislative reform process, decriminalising all forms of sex work, and ensuring adequate funding for gender equity.
These steps will help to achieve a safe, regulated and gender equal industry.
