Posted on: Tue 24 Oct 2017

A study by Curtin University, named “Western Australia Law and Sex Worker Study“, has shined new light on to the lives of sex workers. This study builds off a similar study from 2007 and demonstrates the changes in the industry over 10 years.

Even for those who described a positive impact of sex work on their lives, stigma was still a barrier

The study concluded with several recommendations. The first recommendation is to decriminalise sex work in WA.
