Sisonke is a movement that was formed by sex workers because we were tired of being abused, isolated and not respected. Sisonke wants to unite sex workers across South Africa to stand up for ourselves.
We want to address the many difficulties we face, such as:
Harassment by police.
Unsafe and unfair working conditions.
Abuse from clients, pimps and community members.
Problems with access to services like social, health and police.
Problems with access to banks or opening accounts.
