Our History

In 1994, we began to form the Association of Meretrices Women of Argentina (Asociación de Mujeres Meretrices de la Argentina - AMMAR) in response to constant harassment and violence from the police. A few months later, we joined the Argentine Workers’ Central Union (Central de Trabajadores de la Argentina – CTA) which made it possible to know other realities and abandon the self-exclusion to recognize ourselves as workers. In 2002 was the "Union of Sex Workers of Argentina in action for their rights". Together, we discovered that the organization is our motor force to achieve goals that benefit sex workers and the wider society.
