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 several 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? Invisible Women seeks to uncover the real lives of high-risk women, humanise them, and show that all lives are equally valuable.

Drawn from interviews with the families and friends of victims, police, investigators and outreach support services, as well as consulting court transcripts, coroner's autopsy reports, police interviews and media reports, these stories of incredible women are both deeply moving and shocking in their insight and clarity.

Invisible Women is a book that's long overdue.

About the Authors

Ruth Wykes is a writer, editor, feminist and a passionate human rights activist.

Ruth's previous book, Women Who Kill (co-authored with Lindy Cameron) was published by Five Mile Press in 2011. Ruth lives and works in the Mornington Peninsula.
