This project aims to show that to combat exploitation among sex workers, we shouldn’t victimise or ostracise them, but recognise their work as work. In this project, former sex worker Mariska Majoor talks about her experiences. Sex workers should have the same rights as other workers to benefits, loans and legal protection and the same opportunities to earn money. The promotion of their rights should not be mistaken for promoting trafficking. This line of reasoning has led to the Red Network: a concept for an online platform for the professional advancement of sex workers in the Netherlands.
