Amsterdam Bans Tour Groups From

Sex Workers Windows

February 13, 2020

 

"The local government in Amsterdam has banned guided tours that take groups past the famed windows in the city’s red-light district where visitors watch semi-naked sex workers pose.

 

The move announced Thursday is the city government’s latest attempt to address over-tourism and to clean up and to protect workers the Dutch capital’s red-light district, which is a magnet for rowdy visitors.

 

Sex workers are regularly abused and photographed without their consent by members of tour groups, the city said.

 

“It is disrespectful to treat sex workers as a tourist attraction,” Amsterdam Deputy Mayor Victor Everhardt said in a statement."
