Room for Rent - Making The Case For Sex Worker Rights

4.0 ·

Room for rent is based on the belief that in order to challenge exploitation within this work force we shouldn’t victimize and ostracize sex workers, or close down their working spaces, but recognize sex work as work and listen to their opinions when creating policies that affect them. Full service sex workers working at window brothels are self-employed. They rent spaces from operators, make their own schedules, bring their own tools and keep track of their own administration. Mariska Majoor worked as a sex worker for five years. Now she runs the Prostitution and Information Centre. In ‘Room for rent’ she talks about some of the skills she used while working, and about the stigma sex workers face.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
