Embrace Dignity applauds UN Women progressive statement with regards to prostitution

Embrace Dignity is delighted by the most recent and progressive statement made on the 10thJuly 2020 by Dr. Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, the UN Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director of UN Women, which supports our abolitionist position and long held view that prostituted persons are victims of gender based violence.   She further viewed the sex trade as undermining the right to dignity, a constitutionally guaranteed right in South Africa.
