MERLY ÅSBOGÅRD

I’m 34, born in Colombia but adopted to Sweden, single mother of 2 and spent 16 years in prostitution ranging from being forced, pimped, brothels and “working” for myself. I was I child entering and a brutalised damaged woman exiting who’ve everything to cling on to her life as a survivor and constantly is trying to find ways to grow from her experience.

Today I hold lectures and use my Instagram platform to keep the public informed about prostitution, feminism and men's violence against women.

I write on a book, for a feminist magazine and work in customer service to pay the rent.

A large part of my job is also reaching out to the municipal council and departments in the government to make sure they work with these questions in a manner that makes me paying taxes worthwhile.
