Guilty Without Trial: Women in the Sex Trade in Calcutta
Guilty Without Trial: Women in the Sex Trade in Calcutta
Description
About the Book:

They both are write with rare perception and sensitivity about the lives of sex workers in Calcutta who have shared their stories with them. Through interviews and surveys and case studies, they interrogate the double standards of sexual morality that govern the lucrative sex trade in India thus making visible the more than twenty thousand mothers, heads of households and community members whose activities and voices have been silenced so that others may profit from their activities. Linking the social and economic vulnerability of sex workers to the trade's supply, the authors reveal the harassment, economic insecurity, health hazards and stigmatization programmes by government and other organizations so that their needs may be addressed and their exploitation halted.

I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
