At Respect Inc our work is guided by the following core values:
● ‘Sex Work is Work’ and ‘Sex Worker Rights are Human Rights’
Recognition of this is the first step in reducing stigma against sex workers because it is stigma that
enables and justifies the discrimination and violence that we experience.
● ‘Nothing About Us Without Us’ and ‘Our Bodies, Our Business’
Sex workers should be involved at leadership level in all decision-making that affects us.
● Fighting for Full Decriminalisation
This is the best legal framework for sex workers as it is the only one that will enable us to work freely
and safely, on our own terms.
