Sex workers demand "Rights, not Rescue"..!

No Comment...!!

"I enjoyed the feeling of power I had over men; I had a pimp who looked after me so I was never forced to do anything I didn't choose to," she told IRIN/PlusNews. "I was still doing my A-levels, so the money helped pay my way."

A few years later, one of her clients introduced her to an NGO that tried to provide sex workers with alternative employment, but Kyomya felt that the men who ran the organization did not fully understand the needs of sex workers. Now 27, she and two other former sex workers - Daisy Nakato and Zam Namagembe - are running the Women's Organization Network for Human Rights Advocacy (WONETHA).
