Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka and UN WOMEN discriminate sex workers by calling them “prostitutes” in 2020 Johannesburg, Sunday, 26 July 2020 Show Me Your Number is disappointed in the former Deputy President of South Africa and current Executive Director of UN Women, Ms. Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka’s comments on sex work and about sex workers. When she was the Deputy President of South Africa, Mlambo-Ngcuka served as the Chairperson of the South African National AIDS Council (SANAC) where she championed the rights of sex workers to be included in SANAC so that they can be heard and be part of solutions to ending HIV.
