Dec. 17: International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers

Did you know that Dec. 17 is the International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers

Initially started as a day of remembrance for murdered sex workers in Seattle, Washington USA, it has now become an international day of observance and activism to end violence against sex workers, eliminate stigma against sex work, and advocate to live and work with safety and dignity.

The International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers was founded by Dr. Annie Sprinkle and the Sex Workers Outreach Project USA (SWOP-USA), an American sex worker rights organization. (Source: Wikipedia).
