Tracy Connelly

Just over a week ago Tracy Connelly was murdered in St Kilda.  Tracy worked as a sex worker. This is a job.  Women have the right to be safe at work whatever work they undertake.  You wonder what sort of men think that they have a right to rape and kill women going about their work.  Sex workers have always been at an additional risk due to the dangers of getting into cars and going to unknown places with strangers. Adrian Bayley, Jill Meagher's killer, had a previous jail sentence for attacking sex workers.
