From Economica:

Sex tourism in Costa Rica, where prostitution is legal, is a significant draw for the tourism industry and sometimes the only way for some Costa Rican women to earn a living. Despite this, prostitutes have no legal protection and are often scorned and ignored by general society. Susana Sanchez Carballo uses sculpture and public art to bring these women front and center.
