Fact sheet: Decriminalising sex work in Victoria

RhED, a program of Inner South Community Health, works with sex workers across the state.

On 18 December 2015, RhED launched the Decriminalise Sex Work campaign.

This calls for the removal of the Victorian Sex Work Act 1994 and Sex Work Regulations 2006, saying these have created a two tiered system where sex workers face barriers to reporting violence and are subject to discrimination. For further information:  Fact sheet RhED FAQ


Decriminalise sex work … it’s time

On Friday 18 December at Trades Hall, Carlton 1-2pm, RhED begins the conversation about decriminalising the sex industry in Victoria. This event is hosted by Inner South Community Health Service.

Martin Foley, MP, Fiona Patten, MP and Jane Green, VIXEN will be speaking.

No person’s human or civil rights should be violated on the basis of their trade, occupation work, calling or profession.

Stigma, discrimination and criminalisation make violence against people who work in the sex industry is unacceptable.
