Rachel Wotton, a witty, outspoken young woman from Sydney, Australia, has been working legally as a sex worker for the past 18 years. Half of Wotton’s clients are people with disabilities. People like Mark, forced into a wheelchair by cerebral palsy but nonetheless a human being who needs to touch and be touched as much as he needs to eat and breathe.
Documentary ‘Scarlet Road’, directed by Catherine Scott, reveal the less-known side of sex work. Scott and Woffon tell Thomson Reuters Foundation about the making of the documentary and their works with people with disabilities.
