"The Times report quotes Gary Ridgway, who admitted to murdering 48 women, as explaining, 'I picked prostitutes because I thought I could kill as many of them as I wanted without getting caught.' The prospect of being murdered without repercussion is the ultimate point of disempowerment. Sure, serial killers do get caught and ultimately punished, but only after numerous people are victimized. How do prostitutes become such easy prey for the predators? It is ultimately due to a lack of respect and visibility. As people who exist outside of 'respectable' society, prostitutes enjoy few protections from that society." (04/15/11)
