Sex worker pride day : INTERSECTIONAL FEMINIST PERSPECTIVE



Sex Worker Pride Day 🏳️‍🌈 Real Work, Real Rights


💼 Recognizing this fundamental truth is the first step in dismantling the discrimination and stigma that sex workers endure daily. At Manushya Foundation, we stand firmly behind the motto that #SexWorkIsWork! But what does this mean from an intersectional feminist perspective?


🌏💰⚧️Sex workers face multiple layers of discrimination due to their gender identity, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. This means that sex workers from marginalized groups are facing multiple forms of structural violence. An intersectional approach allows us to address these overlapping challenges, striving for justice and equality for all sex workers, regardless of their backgrounds.


Ending Violence and Discrimination

⚠️Sex workers experience disproportionate violence and discrimination. To end this injustice, we must advocate for the decriminalization of sex work and move towards a world free from oppression, through adequate #labourlaw and workplace health and safety regulations 🤝


🏳️‍🌈Sex Worker Pride Day emphasizes solidarity within the community and among allies. We celebrate the diversity of experiences and backgrounds within the sex worker community and actively collaborate with sex worker rights defenders to amplify their voices. 📣


🏅We are committed to honoring the agency of sex workers, by supporting their right to make informed choices, access healthcare without judgment, and live free from violence and harassment.


#WeAreManushyan ♾️ Equal Human Beings


🎉At Manushya Foundation, we view Sex Worker Pride Day as a celebration of resilience and agency, a call for justice and dignity. We proudly affirms that sex work is real work!

🌟On this day, let's unite to uplift the rights and voices of sex workers, striving for a future where they live and work with pride and respect.
