There are over 700 brothels in the city of Athens.
There are no reputable statistics for the number of women prostituting themselves in studios, by the side of the roads, and from bars across the city.
"Sex workers" in the city include victims of human trafficking, addicts with no other hope of survival, underage refugees, and people forced into it by financial need or abusive partners.
Women who have been trafficked suffer physical, mental, emotional and spiritual trauma - from rape, beatings, verbal and physical abuse, mind games, manipulation and voodoo.
