On September 23, 2010, the 172nd birthday of our namesake, Victoria Woodhull, the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance celebrated the first official “Sexual Freedom Day”, awarded the first “Vicki” Sexual Freedom Awards, and released the first State of Sexual Freedom in the U.S. report.
The 2010 day-long program reflected Woodhull’s mission to affirm sexual freedom as a fundamental human right, highlighting the intersections between government policy and lawmaking, marriage, reproductive rights, personal relationships, child rearing, sexual orientation, gender identification, sexual speech and expression, and sexual practice. Attention was also drawn to sex work, sexual health and rights and integration of sex and religion.
Sex work refers to a wide range of activity where sexual interaction is explicitly exchanged for something of value.
WSFA firmly believes that human beings possess a fundamental right to develop and express their sexuality.
Sexual Health is a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well being in relation to sexuality.
Sexuality and faith are two of the most deeply important and deeply personal aspects of human identity.
