Sex Workers Demonstration in Paris
April 14, 2017
by Patrick Zachmann
On April 8th 2017, Patrick Zachmann photographed a demonstration against French laws that impose heavy fines on anyone caught patronizing prostitutes.

The demonstration was attended by groups of Nigerian and Chinese women, as well as transgender activists, who wore masks to symbolize the lack of agency or identity of sex workers.
