You won’t find the red light district of Amsterdam on the outskirts of town hidden away from tourists or children’s eyes, instead it can be found right in the centre of town. Rows of streets and windows glowing red at night with women of all shapes, ages and ethnicities standing in the window hoping for some business. As a tourist it’s hard not to look, to question to wonder. A country so open, free and accepting yet the women who work in this profession appear like animals on display at a zoo.
