“No matter how you think about sex work from a moral perspective sex work is something that is being done and no matter that your reasons are for doing this job, if you do it you are a real human just like anyone else who does any other job,” Luhrs tells “But we often don't look at sex work like that, we often problematise it.” Luhrs joined the group as it was fighting against a proposed law in the Netherlands parliament that would see sex workers sent to jail for six months if they worked without a license.“There were no sex workers involved in the process.Before his work, it was uncommon to use the word gender to refer to anything but grammatical categories.However, Money's meaning of the word did not become widespread until the 1970s, when feminist theory embraced the concept of a distinction between biological sex and the social construct of gender."It’s irrelevant if you are a ‘happy hooker’ or not.When sex work is work we should have access to labour rights no matter your ideology.Gender is the range of characteristics pertaining to, and differentiating between, masculinity and femininity.Depending on the context, these characteristics may include biological sex (i.e., the state of being male, female, or an intersex variation), sex-based social structures (i.e., gender roles), or gender identity.
Asked if Luhrs is a feminist, she says of course she is - and her works speaks for itself.
Today the distinction is strictly followed in some contexts, especially the social sciences Later, in 2011, the FDA reversed its position and began using sex as the biological classification and gender as "a person's self representation as male or female, or how that person is responded to by social institutions based on the individual's gender presentation." The social sciences have a branch devoted to gender studies.
Other sciences, such as sexology and neuroscience, are also interested in the subject.
“You won't get a mortgage from sex work, or a business bank account. We have only access to prostitution law not access to human rights or labour rights.” New Zealand, she continues, is the country to emulate when piecing together sex work laws, adds Luhrs.
In 2003, the New Zealand Prostitution Reform Act, and fully decriminalised sex work.
