Astha Majhi was one of thousands of women trafficked to Nepal’s dance bars, cabin restaurants, spas, and parlors that front for sex work. She escaped an abusive husband to be abused by strangers. When women and children from Nepal’s rural villages are trafficked to Kathmandu’s city center, they are abused in the work place, denied their salary, and psychologically controlled. And when they leave, or when they are too old to be desirable, the social stigma surrounding their work keeps them silent, ashamed, and isolated. Majhi’s road out of the industry was as painful as her time in it. She was one of the lucky few to receive vocational training and support from a grassroots organization. Not all survivors are as fortunate, and most chose not to take the risk. For many women, getting out of sex work in Nepal feels impossible.
