Our History

Sex workers in Uruguay founded the Association of Professional Meretrices of Uruguay (Asociación de Meretrices Profesionales del Uruguay - AMEPU) in 1986 and two years later it obtained legal status. Our initial goal was helping between fellows, to stop police violence and defend our rights as sex workers and as women. Today, after big struggles, sex work is legal in Uruguay.
