EMPOWER Chiang Mai

This self-led women’s sex worker group organises Thai and migrant sex workers in Chiang Mai, Thailand to initiate and negotiate policy changes at the regional, national and international levels. The group promotes safe and decent work for sex workers and lobbies for government action against police entrapment, and arbitrary arrest of and physical violence against sex workers. The group also supports sex workers internationally, including by assisting and training them in shadow reporting processes related to the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW).
