    One of the participants of the rally argued that the law in question, which she branded “criminal,” has deprived sex workers of “control."

    Opponents of France's 2016 Prostitution Law, which penalises sex workers’ customers, have protested in the vicinity of Les Invalides in Paris.

    Demonstrators argue that the law, designed to protect prostitutes, has led to a drop in sex workers’ income as prospective customers are "afraid" to purchase their services.

    One of the rally’s participants even complained that the “criminal” law in question deprived them of "control."

    ​The situation in the sex industry in France has been choked further by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the measures implemented by the government to curb the spread of the disease.
