SEK: SISTER WATCH PROJECT - VPD of Vancouver, Canada

"Women in the Downtown Eastside are particularly vulnerable to violence, injury and death. Crime statistics for this area of the city have never truly reflected the danger and jeopardy facing the women who live there. Whether the cause is fear of reprisals or general distrust of authority, women have been traditionally reluctant to report crimes against themselves and others. The Sister Watch Project is a multi-faceted operation designed to combat violence against women in the Downtown Eastside and make the community safer for everyone who lives and works there."

The articles below document how this project is working out. Other cities should take a cue from Vancouver and start programs of a similar nature. Making sex for hire illegal only helps serial killers and hurts more women than helps them. Not saying that sex workers are only women, but historically most of them have been. People who think they are better than everybody else and advocate the continued persecution of these women with jail and prison are no better than the evil and mean and disgusting men mentioned below.

In our opinion, they should be prosecuted as co-conspirators.
