International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers

International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers 2012

International Day to End Violence against Sex Workers is celebrated on the 17th December each year.  This event started in 2003 as a memorial to the victims of the Green River Killer in Seattle.  The red umbrella is used to mark this event – the colour red is a colour of beauty, and the umbrella is a symbol of resistance. Overall, the red umbrella symbolises protection from abuse and discrimination faced by sex workers all over the world.  RhED celebrated this event on Monday 17th December 2012 with a march around the streets of St Kilda. This event was an opportunity for RhED and ISCHS to show its solidarity with and support for sex workers in our community and to acknowledge that violence, harassment and discrimination against sex workers is not acceptable.  During this event, a sex worker gave a speech – a copy of which can be accessed here. The staff of RhED would like to give thanks to the sex workers and community members who supported the march this year.
