Scarlet Alliance "Submission to Parliamentary Joint Committee; Trafficking in Women – Sexual Servitude" 2003

Feb 3, 2010

Scarlet Alliance believes there is a pervasive and unhelpful equation of the ‘trafficking’ of South East Asian sex workers to Australia with ‘sexual servitude’ and ‘slavery’. This simplistic reading of such complex issues has resulted in a limited understanding of the experiences of the women involved, and allowed the introduction of poorly planned and researched responses both in legislation and law enforcement strategies.
