Prostitution, in the framework of a Democratic and Social State of Rule of Law, embody a set of
controversial and discriminatory social relations that have been present all along the history of our
country. After the ambivalence in the matter of social protection in the regulation or regimentation
of this social reality, the Ruling T-629 of 2010 offers a framework of discussion, especially on human
dignity, freedom, the right to work and a legitimate system of beneﬁts. Nowadays, the Bill 079 of 2013
is being carried out, which tries to comply the writs of the Constitutional Court with the purpose to
guarantee the dignity of the people who exercise prostitution by their own will.
Keywords: Rights, Lanour Rights, discrimination, prostitution.
