    Abstract

    This paper presents the results of qualitative interviews with 21 women involved in prostitution in Greece. The respondents described high levels of violence perpetrated against them. They reported considerable childhood abuse mostly by family members. They also described experiences of violence by their “clients”. At the same time though they engaged in attempts to undermine the violence they faced by presenting it as normal part of prostitution. Findings are discussed in terms of prostitution as a form of violence against women
