Students will have the chance to vote on whether Edinburgh University Students' Association (EUSA) should actively support the decriminalisation of sex work at the Student Council meeting on Thursday 6 February.
The motion will call for EUSA to issue a statement demanding decriminalisation and to liaise with organisations such as SCOT-PEP and the Sex Worker’s Open University to work towards this goal.
The motion will also result in a zero-tolerance attitude to “whorephobia” and an investigation into how to support student sex workers at the university.
..."EUSA recently declared itself a feminist organisation. For me this is the most important issue for feminists in Edinburgh right now, and we have to do everything within our power to stop it.”
