Ordinary People, Extraordinary Laws

Female sex workers in South Africa provide for an average of 4 adults and/or child dependants.

Less than a third of female sex workers have permanent partners. This places a large responsibility on them to provide for their dependants as well as themselves.

Criminal Law makes sex workers vulnerable because what they do is considered illegal and renders them powerless. Sex workers experience high levels of abuse, rape and exploitation by unscrupulous police and security officers.
