One of the most marginalized and unaddressed sections of Indian society are prostitutes or sex workers. Prostitution is an ancient institution which has an interesting past but unfortunately became the biggest challenge for the modern civil society.
Sex workers are denied or forcefully deprived of their very basic rights which is required to live as a human being i.e. education, health, privacy and most importantly dignity or respect. The simple understanding of Universal definition of ‘human rights’ is that every human being irrespective of his/her caste, creed, religion or any form of identification has certain basic rights which is a priority (from the very beginning). But when it comes to the sex workers we simply ignore everything and declare it against our morality or civilization without even knowing it.
