WRASAC - Dundee and Angus has submitted the following evidence to the Dundee Drugs Misuse Commission Call for Evidence.
We have highlighted the particular needs of women involved in prostitution. We hope that the findings will improve women's experiences of engaging in substance misuse services and also to help inform the shaping of support services that meet the specific needs of women involved in prostitution in the future.
Friday 16 March, 7:30, Bonar Hall, Dundee
Friday 9th March, 7.30 pm Queens Hotel, Perth.
Join the Women’s Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre - Dundee & Angus and the Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre - Perth and Kinross for the hilarious and moving show that give voice to a chorus of lusty, outrageous, poignant and thoroughly human stories
All proceeds from this evenings performance will go towards assisting the work of these local specialist organisations, who support women, children and young people with experience of gender based violence.
WRASAC fully supports the proposals to change the Gender Recognition Act 2004 to enable trans people aged 16 and over to obtain legal gender recognition on a self-declaration basis. These changes have the capacity to significantly improve the lives and rights of trans people, something WRASAC wholeheartedly advocates. Below we explain what the Equal Recognition Campaign is, and why we as a feminist organisation fully support it.
