Title: Solidarity with Sex Workers in the Dominican Republic - London
Description: Amnesty International staff at the London International Secretariat stand in solidarity with Sex Workers in the Dominican Republic, 29 May 2019.

The police in the Dominican Republic are routinely raping, beating and humiliating women who engage in sex work – often at gunpoint. Transwomen women suffer particularly extreme forms of sexual abuse and humiliation due to the additional transphobia they face.

The sexist, macho culture among the National Police, along with the intense social stigma and discrimination against sex workers, embolden the police to unlawfully abuse their powers. They torture women sex workers as a form punishment and social control.

Some of the workers are also women human rights defenders in the Dominican Republic, fighting for their rights. But they are often excluded from human rights and feminist movements due to their sex work.

For all women to be free, we must begin by fighting for the rights of the most marginalised women.
