Free Adrina Podaru and Ana Tomascu.
These two young women are migrant sex workers who were working together for safety, because of this they were accused of running a brothel. They have been sentenced to nine months in prison. Aged just 25 & 20 these sex workers (one of which is pregnant) should not be treated in such a disgusting, unsupportive way, it is cruel and unnecessary.
We cannot deny that sex work is happening, what we can do is make it as safe as possible for the women and men in these often vulnerable positions. Imprisonment is not the answer. This judgement is unfair, yes they were working together but only because it is safer that way. We should not discourage the idea that there is safety in numbers.
Why is this important?
Decriminalisation of Sex Workers should be of high priority.
