A group of rich and famous white actress/feminists who have probably
never in their life traded sex or experienced criminalization have added
their rich and famous names onto a letter condemning a proposal from
Amnesty International to adopt a position to support the
decriminalization of sex work.
Amnesty’s proposal, which is in line with the position of many major
public health and human rights organizations, states that “The available
evidence indicates that the criminalisation of sex work is more likely
than not to reinforce discrimination against those who sell sex, placing
them at greater risk of harassment and violence, including ill-treatment
at the hands of police.” Seems like pretty solid logic, no?
Apparently not. Apparently rich white ladies — the likes of Lena Dunham,
Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, and Kate Winslet — have joined a list of
outdated second-wavers and anti-trafficking organizations opposing the
proposal. Rich white ladies have something to say!
