The Consensus Statement is a tool for sex workers’ advocacy worldwide, which summarises the demands of the global sex worker rights movement. The Consensus Statement outlines eight basic human rights that sex worker-led groups around the world identify as crucial targets for their activism and advocacy.
These eight rights, if fully realised, would be a huge step towards safeguarding sex workers’ human rights, labour rights, and health:
The right to associate and organise;
The right to be protected by the law;
The right to be free from violence;
The right to be free from discrimination;
The right to privacy, and freedom from arbitrary interference;
The right to health;
The right to move and migrate; and
The right to work and free choice of employment.
