Sex worker wins harassment case

Sex worker wins harassment case | Sex Work | Scoop.it
A prostitute has won a landmark sexual harassment case against a Wellington brothel owner.
Gracie Passette's insight:

"Sex workers are as much entitled to protection from sexual harassment as those working in other occupations. The fact that a person is a sex worker is not a licence for sexual harassment - especially by the manager or employer at the brothel."

This article is about the Canadian Supreme Court throwing away three laws that made life hard for prostitutes.

Luke French's comment, February 15, 2014 9:35 AM
I feel that the Canadian Supreme Court took a step in the right direction with the abolition of these three laws. Life is hard enough without unnecessary laws making it harder.

Sex workers won’t get their day in court

Sex workers won’t get their day in court | Sex Work | Scoop.it

On June 13, Canada’s highest court will hear the appeal by federal prosecutors of a lower court ruling that struck down three anti-prostitution laws  for violating the Charter Of Rights And Freedoms.

 

Now we learn that it’s possible sex workers won’t have as strong a voice as they need in these proceedings. Presiding Judge Richard Wagner, it turns out, has denied intervenor status to many groups with frontline experience in the issues at stake.

 

This is a terrible loss. Shut out were organizations like Maggie’s: the Toronto Sex Workers Action Project, Stella and the Feminist Coalition, representing 23 women’s shelters, rape crisis centres and clinics.

 

At the same time, the judge has allowed participation by a range of prostitution abolitionist groups with religious affiliations, like the anti-feminist REAL Women, Christian Legal Fellowship, Catholic Civil Rights League, Evangelical Fellowship of Canada and more.
