L’Association Les Amis du Bus des Femmes: The Bus Association of Friends of Women

Human trafficking and sex slavery is at an all time high. In the midst of this chaos, comes the story of L’Association Les Amis du Bus des Femmes that is protecting sex workers in Paris. This pink and white bus serves as a means of safety and support to the numerous women serving as sex workers in Paris.

ABDF was established in 1990 to fight for the rights of sex workers around Paris and, primarily, to get them medical attention during the AIDS epidemic. With the help of the World Health Organization, they became an NGO in 1994. They now follow and support over 1,500 women every year in Paris, while also fighting against human trafficking and sexual exploitation. The organization was started by prostitutes, for prostitutes; half the staff are still active sex workers.
