Casa Xochiquetzal: shelter for elderly sex workers in Mexico City

Carmelita, a resident of Casa Xochiquetzal, enjoys her daily cigarette at the shelter. One day her son abandoned her on the subway because his wife didn’t want to take care of her and didn’t want to live under the same roof with a sex worker. Asked to choose between his wife and his mother, Carmelita’s son deserted his mother. Photo by Bénédicte Desrus
