Is it a crime to be a woman? In Bangladesh, one of the most densely populated countries in the world, with 26% population below the poverty line, it seems to be a curse to be a woman. Dire poverty has forced family members to sell young girls to brothels, and trafficking is also common in poverty stricken areas.
Earlier this year, Vice News sent its correspondent to Daulatdia to document the lives of sex workers in the region. The correspondent spoke to the workers and documented the everyday life of these women, also managing a rare interview with a client and why he visits the place. The documentary gives a voice to those young girls who have lost their childhood, youth and vigour to a vice like sex work.
