Trabajo sexual y derecho al trabajo – Sex work and the right to work

Are there people here who speak spanish or work with people who do? On the assumption that there must be I’m adding this link to a new article of mine in Spanish, originally published last month in an onlineLatin American journal called CiudadaníaSex, SexCitizenship. It’s about the concept of sex work as a basis for rights and is easy to read, international and blissfully doesn’t participate in the repetitive debates: Trabajo sexual y derecho al trabajo. Please send along to possibly interested parties!

Es un escrito nuevo mío en castellano que no existe en inglés u otro  idioma. No participa en el debate-conflicto usual sino es una historia corta sobre la idea del trabajo sexual.

Háganlo difundir, por favor, porque no hay tantas cosas en este campo en castellano.

Saludos, Laura

  1. I think with anti-trafficking being such a hot-button issue right now, it might help to ally with those countertraffickers who are actually doing the work of rescuing those trafficked without all the the ideological baggage. Here’s a useful link:

  2. Here’s the organization that employs Rotaru in her repatriation efforts:

  3. As far as I can tell the IOM doesn’t have an “anti-sexwork” agenda, though you might want to research it somewhat.

  4. Hello Susan

    I think these replies belong with the other post, no? on evidence of trafficking. Anyway, the IOM are ghastly, part of the UN system. There are no UN entities one could consider friendly toward my sort of views. There are individuals working inside many institutions, but they are extremely constrained. In Europe we have searched high and low.

    I will read the new yorker story, thank you.

    best, Laura
