This piece is a very personal response to an inspiring group of Sex Workers I met who, through KHPT’s assistance, are asserting their rights to resist violence. These women never had a chance to do anything else in life as at a young age were devoted to the temple as sex workers, a practice that is officially outlawed and yet is still commonplace around India.
