Sex worker advocate retires after 28 years

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 31/05/2016 Cleo Fraser

A former sex worker who helped reform New Zealand's prostitution laws is retiring after spending almost three decades supporting those in the industry.

Anna Reed will finish up as head of the Christchurch branch of the Prostitutes' Collective (NZPC), a post she's held since the 1980s, on Thursday.

The 72-year-old helped former Labour MP Tim Barnett draft the Prostitution Law Reform Act in 2003, granting more rights and respect to sex workers.
