The Wireless: "The problems we face are tied to stigma"

The Wireless, 2 June 2016, "The problems we face are tied to stigma"

To mark International Sex Workers Day, a sex worker in New Zealand writes in the The Wireless - a website of Radio New Zealand - that sex work isn't just about women’s bodies.

"One particular myth is that only women do sex work, and only female sex workers are in vulnerable, exploited situations. There are also many male workers, transgender workers, and gender-fluid workers. When talking about the sex industry, it’s vital to complicate the picture. To avoid reducing it to discussion about women’s bodies."
