Margo St. James was an artist working as a waitress and living the Beat life in San Francisco in the s when her home became a counterculture hangout. But the police saw a lot of people going in and out of her house and concluded that it could be for only one reason, and so they arrested her in on prostitution charges. As far as the judge was concerned, that response sealed her fate. Her conviction she was jailed briefly infuriated her and prompted her to take the college equivalency exam and enroll in law school.

COYOTE Founded in California
COYOTE Founded in California | Global Network of Sex Work Projects
Using historical documents, this work focuses on COYOTE's campaign to sever prostitution from its historical association with sin, crime, and illicit sex, and place the social problem of prostitution firmly in the discourse of work, choice and civil rights. COYOTE has done this through extended debate with law enforcement officials over discrimination and selective enforcement of the law, with the feminist movement over the freedom of women to control and use their bodies as they see fit, and with public health agencies over the role of prostitutes in the AIDS epidemic.

Margo St. James, Advocate for Sex Workers, Dies at 83
COYOTE worked to repeal prostitution laws and to end the stigma associated with sex work , calling for the abolition of laws against sex workers, who included strippers, phone sex operators, prostitutes, and adult-film actors. They also advocated the abolition of laws against pimps and panderers but argued for governmental regulation of the prostitute-pimp relationship as a contractual labor agreement. However, they argue, adult women who choose to sell sex for money should be accorded the same rights as other service workers, including health and safety regulations and the right to organize.
Its name is a backronym for Call Off Your Old Tired Ethics , a reflection of the fact that sex work tends to be stigmatized primarily because of society-imposed standards of ethics. COYOTE's goals include the decriminalization as opposed to the legalization of prostitution , pimping and pandering , as well as the elimination of social stigma concerning sex work as an occupation. COYOTE provides counseling and legal referrals for sex workers, and assistance in leaving sex work for different careers. COYOTE provides expert advice and sensitivity training for social service and law enforcement agencies that deal with sex workers.
