Indian Sex Workers Produce Video Response to “Prostitutes of God” Documentary

In 2010, VBS (VICE) media produced a highly offensive documentary film, “Prostitutes of God”, which attempted to explore the cultures of Devadasis in the Indian city of Sangli, Maharashtra, and the northern regions of the state of Karnataka.
