More than 2000 women forced into sex work and their children have been locked down across 80 brothels on GB Road, the largest red-light area in Delhi. Sex workers (Didis) on GB Road are victims of sex trafficking, abuse, and violence. Women of GB Road who support their families through daily earnings found themselves without any money after the lockdown.
