Listen to this episode



In our two-part series on sex workers, we've been looking at the changes that were made to Ireland's laws on prostitution in 2017, which are now under review.

For the second part of the series, we spoke to two people who believe the current laws around the purchase of sex are working.

Mia de Faoite, a survivor of prostitution, discussed her own experience and the violence that sex workers often have to deal with, and we were also joined by Amanda Keane, policy and communications manager with Ruhama.
