Sex workers and their supporters protest in front of City Hall in celebration of International Sex Workers' Rights Day in San Francisco, California March 3, 2008. Dozens of sex workers marched to demand the decriminalization of adult prostitution, securing social recognition of sex work as a valid profession and establishing sex workers' right to self-determination. The movement started in India in 2001 when 25,000 sex workers mobilized together to raise awareness of the violence directed at sex workers and their lack of rights.
