Commercial sex workers in India train to become paralegals

A pilot legal empowerment scheme in India aims to educate commercial sex workers about their rights and basic legal procedure.  The program, a collaborative effort by the Pune District Legal Services Authority (PDLSA) and the Delhi-based Centre for Advocacy and Research (CFAR) offers a three-month structured course through which participants may qualify as paralegals able to represent themselves in court.
