Bound Not Gagged International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers Event

Today is December 17, which means that it is International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers.  There are events going on in various localities to protest violence against sex workers and advocate for public policies that reduce such violence rather than encourage it.  We can do the same on Bound Not Gagged, and blog against violence.  Let’s devote today to doing that.  Of course, we can write about what our hearts and minds say to, but here are some ideas of things to reflect on and post about:

-personal experience with violence in the sex industry

-advocating for public policies that effectively reduce violence against sex workers, rather than prohibitionist policies

-research and the media’s portrayal of violence against sex workers

-recaps of today’s events and photos

-remember sex workers who we lost due to violence

-reflect on what this day means to you
