Stephanie Klee, Sex-worker

Stephanie Klee has been a sex-worker for the last thirty years. She runs a brothel, and founded a union for prostitutes in Germany. She has worked to make prostitution a job like any other, with equal rights for all those involved in the industry. She says she's only encountered a violent client once, and wishes she'd told her parents about her profession before they died. She talks to Owen Bennett-Jones about her life, and the challenges she faces.
