A collection of stories, statements, and campaigns, both in Britain and the US, from prostitute women (and often their mothers and sisters) campaigning against both their criminalization and the violence against women.
"Prostitute women, branded as symbols of vice, degradation and guilt, are often accused of attracting violence. But what about children, symbols of virtue, purity and innocence? What do prostitutes and children have in common that increases their chances of being raped or assaulted? Not occupation, lifestyle, or 'morality'. But both lack social power."
