Faridpur Brothel is the second to largest brothel in Bangladesh. (17 registered brothels in the country) 600+ girls live in a hidden neighboorhood accesible through one of the six alleyways, covered with small ragged curtains mimicking doors. Many girls are under aged - the "legal" age being 18. The chhukris wait during long periods of time for clients to walk past their rooms, the girls are forced to stake out their territory 24h/7 365 days a year. March 16, 2011. Gabriela Barnuevo.
