Skorea sex workers rally 05 16 11

South Korean prostitutes hide their identities as they participate in a rally to declare 'Sex Worker's Day' on June 29, 2005 in Seoul, South Korea. Prostitutes rallied against government law aimed at the sex industry. The government began enforcing new laws last year to target human traffickers, pimps and prostitutes. The sex industry accounts for more than four percent of South Korea's gross domestic product, with its annual sales estimated at $21 billion in 2003.
