Rose from Nigeria ended up as a prostitute in Europe. This was not what she expected her life in Europe would be. They told her that if she’d come to Europe, there would be a good job for her and Rose believed them. She left everything back home. But then, finally in Europe, they forced her to work as a prostitute and to sell herself to everybody.
Driving through the streets of Genoa gives us a good insight of the scale of prostitution. At different kind of places we find African women on the streets, waiting for a man. The first time somebody picked up Rose, she was so scared and couldn’t stop crying. Six years later Rose is still working in the prostitution business, afraid that they will kill her family. She has a huge debt to the people who brought her to Europe, there’s no way out for her. Tom Marfo dealt with hundreds of women like Rose. Often brought in by very close relatives. Chika Unigwe interviewed these girls. One of them refused to pay the people who brought her to Europe for one month but then received a picture of her brother getting beaten up.
