International Sex Worker Rights Day – 3rd March 2011


On 3rd March 2001 in India many thousands of sex workers took to the streets to protest against the violence and discrimination they experienced – this led to the creation of International Sex Worker Rights Day.

This day in March also marks the day, in 2009, when sex workers came together from southern, western and eastern Africa to form the African Sex Worker Alliance, which now has members in many African countries.
