Petition on sex education at the Downing St website

I’m not sure this is entirely on-topic here (although I would have liked to include sex work in the issues covered, I figured it was safer to stick to a single issue that ought to get lots of support rather than alienating others) – I’ve created a petition on the Downing Street website to call for a review and revision of sex education in the UK following the findings that 56% of Londoners believe there are some circumstances in which a rape victim should take responsibility for their being raped.

I guess one of my hopes is that if such a review took place then there would hopefully be scope for input from sex workers’ rights organisations in that review.

Since being a sex worker is one of those reasons that more people seem to think makes it your fault if you’re raped, then that is also a very important reason why I think this petition is important. At the very least, we should hope to get a response from the PM’s Office.

(Incidentally, the closing date is a few months after the expected election date, so it might not be Gordon Brown’s office at that stage).
