Meryl Streep and Kate Winslet oppose  of sex trade

Actresses Meryl Streep, Lena Dunham, Kate Winslet and Anne Hathaway have opposed a human rights group’s proposal to decriminalise sex trade. The stars are opposing the “Draft Policy on Sex Work” of Amnesty International, which posits that all consensual sexual conduct between adults, which excludes acts that involve coercion, deception, threats, or violence, is entitled to protection from state interference, said The Hollywood Reporter.

The report, scheduled to be presented next month at an Amnesty meeting in Dublin, argues that the ongoing criminalisation of the sex trade leads only to more “harassment and violence, including ill-treatment (of sex workers) at the hands of police.”

A letter addressed to the leaders of Amnesty, signed by 400 individuals and organisations, including Streep, Dunham, Winslet, Hathaway, Emily Blunt, Allison Williams, Emma Thompson, Lisa Kudrow, begs to differ.
