Voices of Women Media supports the Call to Action on Sex Work and HIV. As an organization that works closely with sex workers to be creative and gain technical skills, we recognize the importance in raising awareness of these issues in an effort to increase the rights of sex workers. This cause is very important for us as it affects the women we work with directly. In Amsterdam, The Netherlands there has been steps backwards in the fight for sex worker’s rights. We are witnessing the closing of the windows and the struggle that our women have to deal with in order to stay in business. We need to decrease the negative stigma that is associated with sex work. Voices of Women Media stands in solidarity along with these other sex worker organizations who have supported our own work by screening our videos to their constituents.
VOW Media is an emerging organization that aims to provide a way for marginalized communities of women to educate and express themselves through different forms of media. VOW Media believes that personalizing women’s individual experiences in the long run can have a long lasting effect on women’s rights worldwide. VOW Media aims to contribute to the advancement of women in society by giving these women the means to take media in their own hands. Through using media and skill training, we want to further their abilities to empower themselves and let their own voices be heard.
