Chinese police detained a sex workers’ rights activist in October 2010, a few days after she publicly called for prostitution to be legalised. Ye Haiyan was taken from the offices of APNSW member organisation the China Women’s Rights Workshops.  

Only days earlier and other activists had called for officials in the central Chinese city of Wuhan to sign a petition calling for sex work to be legalised.  For the full story see the Womensphere website.
