27 November 2019: Labor Announces Sex Work Review

Hours after The Age publishes an article on sex work violence, Labor publishes a press release announcing a sweeping review of sex work to commence in early 2020. Fiona Patten MP will head the review, which will consider all aspects of the sex industry

Labor’s Platform to refer the matter to the Victorian Law Reform Commission did not eventuate, with the government instead opting for this Review, which isn’t connected to the Victorian Law Reform Commission.

However, Fiona Patten is a wonderful person to head this review and we hope for good outcomes.
