Violence against sex-workers has nearly doubled in less than five years.
The Sex-Workers Alliance says it's due to a law-change in 2017, which punishes those who buy sexual services.
The group is holding a vigil outside the Dáil this evening to bring attention to the problem.
Spokesperson Linda Kavanagh says the new law is to blame.
"It has increased by 92 percent which is an incredibly scary number."
"There's a been a real reduction in the feeling that sex workers can go the gardaí when an assault occurs against them."
Linda says less than 1 percent of sex workers plan to go to officers if they experience violence against them.
