Janelle Fawkes, head of the Scarlet Alliance, said laws protecting sex workers in Tasmania, Queensland and the Australian Capital Territory are not enough and should extend to the other territories and states, the Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported.
The International Whores Day event was about creating awareness about discrimination, Fawkes told the ABC.
"Currently levels of discrimination against sex workers are unacceptably high," she said, "from prices to advertise in newspapers, through to getting bank loans, to being affected in custody battles because of our sex work experience being used against us."
