Remembering Margo St. James

A Special Series

 

Margo St. James, who sparked the sex worker rights movement in the 1970’s, passed on January 11, 2021. James was a visionary who brought global advocates together to fight for sex worker rights, police accountability, and gender equality. She recognized that police violence and criminalization are the problem, not the solution. She once wrote, “Whores don’t need to be saved from themselves but rather from the men who insist on putting them in prison!” Amen.

In this special series, we sit down with leaders from the sex worker rights movement to discuss their work and honor St. James’ legacy.
