“All people are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience, and should act towards one other in a spirit of brotherhood.” The Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Pro Sentret believes that all work in relation to prostitution must be based on human rights. Prostitution is an act, not a character trait of some human beings. Prostitution involves two parties: one person buying, and one person selling, sexual services. We want to live in a society where no-one feels that prostitution is the only available option. We cooperate with individuals, respecting the choices that they make in the situations in which they find themselves. Pro Sentret wants to replace myths and prejudices about prostitution with greater insight and knowledge. We want to live in a society that instead of stigmatising women and men who sell sex shows solidarity with them. Society should invest heavily in preventing prostitution and in providing help to people who are looking for alternatives to sex work. Female and male sex workers must be included as equal partners in the processes that relate to them and their lives. Pro Sentret aims to support individuals by making them aware of their rights and responsibilities, and helping them to maintain their self-respect and good health so that they can take control of their own lives and realise their true potential.
