Social Science Festival: Robyn Maynard - An Introduction to Sex Workers' Rights

Wednesday, October 23, 2013
14:00 to 15:15

There are many misconceptions about sex workers and the sex trade. Stella is a community organization that is operated by and for sex workers. For 18 years they have advocated for social and legal rights, and against stigmatization. They also offer health, legal, and safety support to women who work in the sex trade. This presentation will describe Stella, explain how sex workers protect their health and safety, as well as discuss the harmful effects of the current laws that criminalize sex workers.

Robyn Maynard is an outreach worker at Stella. She does street outreach in Hochelaga and Downtown.
