#Amsterdam municipal Council is listening to opinions about the #EroticCenter & closing of window brothels in the #RedLightDistrict. There was a closed (no media, photos, livestream) session where they posed their questions to sex workers yesterday.

Irish DOJ now 3.5 years late on its review of the 2017 sex work law, which increased rates of sexual violence & attacks on women.

The delay blatantly deprioritizes both sex workers *and* survivors of trafficking, because criminalization harms them both.

"I cannot express the marginalisation and the isolation they feel because they are forced to work alone."

We spoke to @thejournal_ie about the delay in the law review and what this means for sex workers who are forced to work alone to work legally.
