Amsterdam To Get Statue to Honor Prostitutes

Amsterdam's red-light district will soon get a new attraction: a statue to honor prostitutes around the world.


The statue, designed by artist Els Rijerse, will likely be unveiled at the end of March, Dutch news agency ANP reported.

"In many countries, prostitutes struggle and people have no respect for them whatsoever. The statue is meant to give all those men and women strength," Mariska Majoor, a former prostitute who commissioned the statue, told ANP.
