Phoenix is a member of the German "AG Recht - Prostitution" working group for law and prostitution, which developed out of the Whores Movement and which is supported by various advice centres for prostitutes and by self-help groups. The working group tries to see that the prostitution law is enforced and in connection with that has drawn up a report on working and hygiene standards in prostitution.
