Prostitution (we prefer the word sex work) is of all times and prevalent in every country in the world. Whatever morals, religion, laws, or culture dictates, it will always be there. Only the working conditions differ from country to country, and makes the work more or less safe for a sex worker. Many issues stem from the stigma on sex work, and how society perceives both sexuality and sex work.
The PIC provides accurate information from a sex worker perspective and fights the myths and misperceptions about sex work. Especially the conflation between sex work and trafficking has to be addressed. Sex work is work and trafficking is a crime. People have the right to choose sex work, but also they have the right to be protected against forced labour and exploitation, both in the sex industry and other sectors. Sex worker rights are human rights!
