When news of a murdered woman hits the headlines in Australia, people sit up and take notice. Unless that woman happens to be a sex worker.

Invisible Women tells the stories of 65 murdered sex workers – all of whom are somebody’s mother, daughter, wife or sister – whose identities have been erased. Why do we see some lives as less valuable than others, and what price do we all pay for this disgraceful lack of care? These stories of incredible women are both deeply moving and shocking in their insight and clarity. And definitely way overdue.

      A very moving and insightful book. A fitting tribute to the many women in Australia who lost their lives in horrendous circumstances.
