International Sex Workers' Day 2017

June 2, 2017 in the World

International Sex Workers' Day takes place on June 02, 2017. The day which is also known as International Whore's Day is a celebratory day, which remembers the discrimination of prostitutes and their often exploitative living and conditions of working. The starting point of the International Whore's Day as a memorial was the second June 1975 in which more than 100 prostitutes occupied the Church Saint-Nizier in Lyon in order to get attention to their situation. This remembrance day is celebrated annually since 1976 on the 2nd of June.

In the beginning of the 70 law enforcement agencies keeped the prostitutes in France under increasing pressure. The police reprisals forced the women to work more in secret. As a result, the protection by the public has been removed and led to more violence against the girls. After two murders and the unwillingness of the government to improve the situation of prostitutes, sex workers in Lyon occupied finally one of the local churches - Saint-Nizier in rue de Brest - and went on strike. After eight days the church was cleared by the police. The event is regarded as the starting point of a movement of prostitutes and sex workers' rights. (With material from: Wikipedia)
