At the Edge of the Margins: One year later — COVID-19's impact on women in the sex trade

We launched our At the Edge of the Margins virtual round table series shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic erupted. As the world faced unprecedented challenges and deep uncertainty, we wanted to shed light on the effects of the pandemic on women in the sex trade, who were already suffering from multilayered inequalities, violence and poverty. One year later, the crisis continues and our collective efforts to end sex trafficking and sexual exploitation remain urgent. While some parts of the world are finding their way toward a new normal, others are enduring devastating waves of COVID-19. The Shadow Pandemic ― the rise of violence against women this past year ― still rages.

In our next virtual round table, we check in with survivor leaders from around the world for an update on their advocacy and frontline service work since the global health crisis began. The panelists will evaluate their respective governments' responses to the pandemic's impact on women in the sex trade and the policy implications of their (in)action. They will also share their vision and plans to secure justice and equality for prostituted and sex trafficked women and girls worldwide.
