Media Portrayal of Sex Workers

Posted on: Tue 20 Aug 2019

Last week’s Sydney stabbing caused the death of the 42nd woman in Australia to die from the violence of a man.

The victim was Michaela Dunn, a sex worker. These facts were either ignored or treated as an afterthought by many major media organisations.

Feminist insider Meghan King from the YWCA speaks with Breakfast’s Zoe Kounadis & Tom Mann about the contribution from the media towards the demonisation of sex workers as well as the ongoing struggle for decriminalisation of abortion happening in NSW and right here in SA.
