Following on from KayThi Win's speech at the AWID forum in April, Realitycheck.org have published this article .  The author, Chi Mgbako, illustrates:

'Women’s rights advocates who view all people in prostitution as “slaves” and make no distinction between those trafficked into prostitution and consenting adult sex workers who are in the trade by choice or circumstance often advocate for anti-sex trafficking policies that harm adult sex workers.'

Chi ends the article with a clear plea that 'the women’s rights movement should not embrace policies that harm female, male, and transgender sex workers.'
