International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers was started as a day of vigil and memorial for the sex workers who were murdered in the U.S. Today, Dec 17th has become an international day of solidarity to end violence against one of the most vulnerable parts of society.

This photoset aims to call out violent behaviour, as well as behaviour that creates an environment in which violence against sex workers is acceptable.

Vanessa has been full-time with Project X since 2011, and as a result, has had many opportunities to meet and connect with sex workers in Singapore and around the world. Under her leadership, the organisation has grown from a small group of volunteers to one where there are three paid staff and a team of over 60 volunteers. Correspondingly, she has increased the annual operating budget of the organization five times, and is now recognized as the leading organization that empowers and assists women in the sex industry.

Vanessa has written and spoken extensively about sex work, human trafficking, rape culture, and LGBTQ rights in Singapore. She believes that if people can speak about sex, gender and sexuality in open and in non-judgmental ways, society will become a safer place for everyone.

Vanessa holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from the University of Warwick, and a Masters Degree in Gender, Society and Representation from University College London.
