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


‘Trafficking Representations’ Call for Papers, Anti-Trafficking Review Thematic Issue

The Anti-Trafficking Review calls for papers for a themed issue entitled ‘Trafficking Representations.’ The deadline for submissions is 8 January 2016.

Work that migrants do in the sex industry and other irregular employment sectors is increasingly characterised as exploitation and trafficking. Representations of trafficking and forced labour are pervasive within media, policymaking, and humanitarian debates, discourses and interventions.

The Review promotes a human rights based approach to anti-trafficking, exploring anti-trafficking in a broader context including gender analyses and intersections with labour and migrant rights.
