Description: Law reform for sex work has been in process for over a decade now. Many politicians say they can’t support decriminalisation of sex work because you – the public – don’t support change. This means that as many as 182,000 women and men who make a living selling sexual services in South Africa remain vulnerable to abuse and have no recourse if they experience violence. This video highlights the consequences of criminalizing sex work and what would decriminalization of sex work do.
