    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Recently, Amnesty International joined many other large NGOs by voicing support for the full decriminalisation of sex work and the protection of sex workers’ human rights. In Sweden, however, policymakers, supported by the public, are very hostile to this development. This book, published in Sweden in 2006, was the first comprehensive publication to query the cultural mechanisms behind the strong and unified Swedish resistance against commercial sex, and place it in a larger context.

      Thank you for your support! And no worries about "low" donations, all donations are greatly appreciated. We will make an effort to get the campaign gain momentum now, and hopefully another chapter will be done in a couple of weeks.
