Giving Career Alternatives to Women Exiting Prostitution

Turning the Tables is a Tel Aviv-based group that is helping women exit the sex trades by offering them alternative careers in the fashion industry. Their studio, pictured above, along with their Director, Lilach Tzur Ben Moshe, is a hub of activity. Women take sewing and design lessons, create clothes (on the rack besides Lilach) that can be sold, or engage in sewing piecework for pay. Other groups in Israel provide social services for this vulnerable population, but this is the only organization focusing on alternative career choices.

Watch Lilach describe some of clothes that program participants have designed here.
