On the occasion of CAP International’s first World Congress Against Sexual Exploitation, held in November 2014 in Paris, several trade union representatives presented the commitment of their organisations to fighting all forms of sexual exploitation, including the prostitution of others.
Denouncing the economic and sexual exploitation underpinning this inherently harmful form of violence against women and girls, they also expressed their firm opposition to the ultraliberal concept of “sex work”.
