The brainchild of one Sandra White MSP, over the last 15 years has been to launch public consultation after public consultation in attempts to close down Glasgow's adult entertainment venues.
The latest is an ongoing consultation which ends in August seeking to license the clubs in a way which could see them closed down for good.
When I was on national TV a few days ago debating the issue with Sandra, she said she hadn't engaged with dancers many years ago when they petitioned for her to meet with them because she didn't believe it came from the girls themselves.
What she fails to acknowledge time and time again is that dancers in Glasgow's adult entertainment venues are happy, safe and want to keep their jobs! Workers within the clubs are also becoming unionised with GMB union.
There are around 700 dancers working across Scotland and it's time she asked them! I want to live in a Scotland which is progressive and recognises the right of a woman to have autonomy over her own body.
Please sign the petition and spread the word! We want as much tangible info as possible to feed into our wider campaign to keep the clubs open.
Strip club dancers have marched through Sheffield to oppose plans to close Spearmint Rhino.
The brightly-dressed protesters stopped traffic in Sheffield city centre, braving driving rain between the Brown Street club and Sheffield Town Hall.
Sheffield's Spearmint Rhino club was targeted by feminist extremists who commissioned private detectives to obtain video evidence and report on anything untoward. They claimed to have filmed inappropriate sexual contact clearly without the
consent of the participants. Surely such filming would be illegal so perhaps these may be just claims.
The dancers and supporters, including Sheffield Hallam University women's officer Gabby Willis, told marchers filming of that sort should be classed as revenge porn. Ms Willis said she supported the dancers' right to earn money however they
choose. She said:
I think it's really important we stand by women's choice to do that in a safe environment for their job, if they want to.
Club worker Rachael McCoy told protesters:
This is really important to us. This is our livelihoods. I'm a single mother. This job helps me feed my children. This job has actually changed my life for the better.
New York State legislators have introduced a bill that would decriminalize sex work and repeal statutes that prohibit the buying and selling of sex between adults.
Advocacy group DecrimNY.org is the driving force behind the bill, sponsored by state senators Jessica Ramos and Julia Salazar. Five other senators also introduced a companion bill into the state Assembly.
The bill modifies laws around facilities that are used as places of prostitution, according to one report , and would legalize the buying and selling of sex under certain circumstances.
Ramos and Salazar stress their bill protects LGBTQ youth, living on the street, who have been found to trade sex at higher rates than of other youths, and undocumented immigrants, who make up the largest group arrested in massage parlor raids.
Every worker in New York and beyond has an inherent right to a safe workplace environment no matter what work they do. We are here to affirm sex work is work, said Ramos during a news conference.
