More about the event: Sex workers’ rights are at the forefront of many social movements that are central to human rights for women and sex workers are innovators in technologies in the digital age for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all. This in-person panel discussion will showcase sex worker leadership from across the globe to discuss digital technologies, online spaces and rights questions pertaining to access for women. We will describe how laws restricting sexuality, including sex workers, but more generally, limit women’s right to digital assembly (a vital way in which we all globally organize due to the COVID-19 pandemic), strategies for women’s rights in online spaces that defend our bodies, our speech, and the free flow of ideas. We will also review areas of multilateral and global policies that affirm the rights of sex workers and how fears about digital life are challenging these rights.
