This NSWP Statement responds to attempts to criminalise the purchase of sex in France. We condemn these proposals which are ideologically driven rather than evidence-based, and incorrectly view sex work through the prism of ‘violence against women’ whilst also irresponsibly conflating trafficking with sex work.
The consultation process and proposals excluded the voices of current sex workers and the sex worker rights organisations that advocate for a rights - based approach to policy and legislation and we condemn any legal process that purposefully ignores the voices of those most directly affected by the proposed laws.
