International Sex Workers Day: June 02

June 2 is observed as International Sex Workers Day to bring to the fore the miserable living conditions under which this community works. While a few women volunteer to become sex workers for the lure of big money involved, a few women are forced into the profession due to circumstances. And of course we have heard of young girls in India being sold as child brides to the rich who turn them into sex slavery. As if that was not enough coronavirus lockdown situation has made their lives worse. With zero business, sex workers are not only broke but a few are even starving. at least this is the plight of sex workers in India during the lockdown imposed due to the pandemic. In fact, there was a petition filed at the Delhi High Court seeking direction to the government to ensure welfare of sex workers.
