Chapter 23: New forms of worker organising: Sex work in Argentina

Kate Hardy


AMMAR (Asociacio_n de Mujeres Meretrices de la Argentina, the Argentinean Female Sex Workers’ Union) was established in 1994 in the capital city of Buenos Aires. ‘Sex work’ can refer to a range of jobs and practices, including stripping, webcam work, escorting or other forms of selling sexual services and labour. In the case of AMMAR, they focus on women directly selling sex, sometimes known as ‘prostitution’. AMMAR – and others – adopt the term ‘sex work’ in order to bring this form of work in line with other forms of work, arguing that it is used as a source of income and because it shares features with other forms of work and employment.
