Access to decent work
“The primary goal of the ILO today is to promote opportunities for women and men to obtain decent and productive work, in conditions of freedom, equity, security and human dignity”
Juan Somavia, former ILO Director General
Prostitution of others is not not a “sex work”. It is actually neither sex nor work but a lucrative system of sexual and economic exploitation that jeopardises social justice and gender equality efforts. It is incompatible with worker’s rights and “decent work” as defined by the International Labour Organisation.
Our coalition is succesfully mobilising dozens of trade unions, representing more than 10 millions workers, and standing in solidarity with our efforts to abolish the exploitative system of prostitution.
