Sex Workers’ Outreach Project (SWOP), at it’s most basic, is an anti-violence campaign, addressing the violence that sex workers experience because of their marginalised and/or criminal status.  Sex workers are seldom afforded protection or recourse from violent acts committed against them because of the precarious, often graft-ridden relationship between sex work and law enforcement. Society tolerates violence against sex workers because of stigma and myths. Only until these falsehoods are corrected and sex workers are legitimised will we be able to effectively prevent and minimise the challenges of sex work.
