Today it’s International Day to End Sex Worker Violence. It aims to draw attention to the prevalence of violence and stigmatising of sex workers of all genders and sexualities worldwide. Within their book Where Women Have No Doctor from Hesperian Health Guides, Chapter 20 focuses on sex workers.
You might consider helping Hesperian by translating books like this; or writing new texts to offer advice and support to male and Trans sex workers, or to provide critical resources for healthcare and development practitioners who have contact with sex workers. (If you think you can help with writing health advice books on any topic please email Hesperian). Alternatively if you travel for work and could help distribute books your assistance would be very welcome. As might sharing existing leaflets and flyers you have on sex worker rights and health which you can donate to Hesperian’s growing archive. Or you may want to assist with work like this on a variety of health topics by donating.
Your Advent treat today is Lamb’s beautiful song Gabriel.Tweet
