Amnesty International has approved a policy to endorse the decriminalisation of the sex trade . . ..

Many former sex workers have criticised the decision. “We feel that Amnesty International are supporting the men who are killing our women and it’s a slap in the face,” said Bridget Perrier, who was sold into sex work at the age of 12 and later founded Sex Trade 101 in her native Canada to help women leave the industry. “This is a human rights violation in itself.”
