Faridpur Brothel

Pakhi (meaning "Bird" in Bangla) gets ready in her room for the afternoon rush-hour of clients in the Faridpur brothel. The brothel is composed of four large, three-story buildings, a maze of bungalows fills the space between the buildings housing even more workers. An estimate of 600 sex workers work in this brothel, many condemned to work for years to pay off the madam that has purchased them. A portion of the girls have been sold by their families, in search of some extra cash to be able to maintain the rest of the family.
