Submission into Victoria Review into Decriminalisation of Sex Work

As a decade-old organisation with expertise in the sexual exploitation of women in Australia and globally, having authored papers in the field, contributed to a number of inquiries into the sex trade, trafficking and modern day slavery, as well as having supported a significant number of women who once worked in the sex industry and whose experiences and unique knowledge has informed our work since our formation, we believe we have something to offer your inquiry.

We would like to put on record that we are deeply concerned by the decision of this Committee to exclude submissions from women who have exited the industry and view this as a serious abuse of proper inquiry by elected officials.
