WOMEN SUPPORTING WOMEN
With MAITÉ CRISTINA LÓPEZ
Maité Cristina López
Maité is a sociologist with a keen interest in the rights, fights & views of sex workers in Latin America. Intersectional and decolonial feminism gifts us the opportunity to learn from one another and the purpose of this research is to learn the potential of agency from women whose labour rights, health rights & body rights are constantly and historically denied by society at large, whose livelihoods and achievements are stigmatized & who are socially constructed as women who are deserving of violence and death.
ABOUT THE Organisation
Maite’s research is about the lives, challenges and triumphs of female sex workers across Latin America. She positions herself more as a researcher than as an activist because the research shows, time and again, that the best way to support these women is by giving them the tools and the funds to empower themselves, rather than trying to ‘rescue’ them from their chosen profession out of a patriarchal sense of morality.

ABOUT THE PROJECT
Long-term interviews and research into the lives of sex workers with the goal of creating a body of literature that names and shares the experiences of this all-too-often ignored and shamed profession. By bringing light to these women, we can normalize and uplift women everywhere by allowing them to step out of the shadows of shame and guilt.
