GEN VIC submission to the Inquiry into the decriminalisation of sex work

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.
