Principles for Model Sex Industry Legislation
The Principles for Model Sex Work Legislation comprehensively outline core principles in sex work law reform. They act as an integral source of information and reference for politicians, government bodies, advocates, health providers, community sectors, current and potential sex workers, and sex industry owners and managers. These Principles have been developed by sex workers. They are the outcome of a five-stage consultation process with the Scarlet Alliance membership, including sex workers from a range of organisations and locations and with diverse experiences and backgrounds. The purpose of this process was to ensure the Principles reflect the voices, needs, objectives and consensus of sex workers in Australia. Putting sex workers voices at the centre of policy is a key step in creating law reform that is ethical, effective and sustainable. The Principles reflect contemporary research, literature and personal experiences, and are essential for anyone engaging in law reform or advocacy on sex work issues.
