In some societies, including Nepal, menstruation is perceived as unclean and embarrassing, extending even to the mention of menstruation both in public (in the media and advertising) and in private (amongst the friends, in the household, and with men). Menstruating women are considered to be unpure and are banished from their homes for days.

WGNRR Supports Amnesty International’s Draft Policy for the Decriminalization of Sex Work

August 7, 2015

We at WGNRR align ourselves with the Global Network of Sex Work Projects (NSWP) in their statement of support for Amnesty International´s Resolution and draft policy. The proposed policy is evidence-based, grounded in human rights and harm reduction principles, and was developed through a process of meaningful consultation with sex workers themselves. We see it as an important step forward in developing policies that effectively contribute to better safeguards for sex workers, and in turn protect their human rights, including their rights to self-determination, privacy, health, to work and free choice of employment, to associate and organize, and to be free from violence and discrimination, among others.
