Their aim, in this non-sensational, sometimes moving and confronting book, is to challenge society about why we respond to the killing of some people, and not others, when the rhetoric from governments and churches is that all life is valuable. – NEWCASTLE HERALD

Book overview

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 shocking lack of care? These amazing stories of incredible women are both deeply moving and shocking in their insight and clarity. And definitely way overdue.
