The English Collective of Prostitutes (ECP) founded in 1975, campaigns for the decriminalisation of prostitution, sex workers’ right to recognition and safety, and financial alternatives so that no one is forced into prostitution by poverty. The ECP provides information, help and support to individual prostitute women and others who are concerned with sex workers’ rights, civil, legal and economic rights. The first spokeswoman for the ECP was Selma James.
