All over the world and throughout history, women and girls from the most discriminated communities are over-represented in prostitution. Poor, Indigenous, migrant, asylum-seeking, displaced women, those from the lowest castes and from ethnic, religious and racial minorities are the first victims of pimps and sex buyers.

By investigating the prostitution of women and girls in 49 countries, the Last Girl First! study illustrates prostitution is at the heart of several patterns of domination such as patriarchy, racism, colonialism, imperialism, capitalism, class domination, war and militarisation & how the latter shape the massive sexual and economic exploitation of the most marginalised in our societies today.

“What is profoundly disturbing to us is that we are highly visible yet ignored, and that there is a real acknowledgement of poverty and sexism in our countries of origin, yet, we’re described by academics as “migrant sex workers”. It is disturbing that there is some kind of liberal sympathy for Asian women. There is also a much stronger force that is very determined to confirm that the situation we are in -the sexism, the stereotyping, the violence that is committed against us- is our purpose. Even among people that might be our natural allies there is a real determination to have us remain subordinate.”

– Suzanne Jay, Asian Women for Equality
