Human Rights Activists and Civil Society Organisations Challenge the legality of the 2014 Anti-Pornography Act in Constitutional Court

Uganda's Anti-Pornography Act, was signed into law by President Y. Museveni on February 6, 2014. This act has had disastrous consequences for women in Uganda since its assension. Numerous women, including female sex workers, have been harrassed (sexually and otherwise) and/or assaulted by mobs who target women they deem to be 'sexually exciting' men as one of the vague terms in the wording of the act stipulate.
