A murder of a massage worker has led to a historic charge of incel-related terrorism. But the writers of an op-ed published by Chatelaine magazine (May 29) say that's not the route to meaningful change for sex workers, or women at large.

Elene Lam, founder and executive director of Butterfly (Asian and Migrant Sex Workers Support Network), Chanelle Gallant, an organizer in movements for sex workers rights and racial justice in Toronto, and Vincent Wong, a lawyer and William C. Graham Research Associate at the International Human Rights Program (IHRP) at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law, write a terrorism charge isn't the solution to violence against women.
