Amnesty International has passed a vote to support the decriminalisation of consensual sex workers.
It claims the decision recognises the need to protect the human rights of sex workers.
“Sex workers are one of the most marginalized groups in the world who in most instances face constant risk of discrimination, violence and abuse,” said Salil Shetty, secretary-general of Amnesty International.
The move has been welcomed by many sex workers and their supporters, who believe that it will make their lives safer.
However, others have criticised the move, including celebrities Meryl Streep, Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet, who say the proposal legitimises the abuse of women and further fuels sex trafficking.
