Presents the personal experiences of sex workers in Asia, Australia, the Americas, the Caribbean, West Africa and Western Europe. In exploring the individual narratives of people involved in the sex trade around the world, this book seeks to undermine the crude stereotypes often employed to characterize those involved in this expanding industry. It documents national and international sex workers' movements organized to uphold their legal and human rights as they struggle to resist marginalization and exploitative working conditions around the world.
