The New York Times recently published two articles about sex work that I thought I might share. Amnesty International had just released a policy calling on governments worldwide to decriminalize sex work, and so it the issue has been in the news. The first piece is a well-written and very comprehensive piece, exploring the arguments on both sides of the debate. The second is an update and announcement of Amnesty International’s official policy release.
