An author, activist and a sexworker, Nalini Jameela portrays the true picture of a sex worker through her book, The Autobiography of a Sex-worker (2005). The book was translated to English in 2007 by
J. Devika. Nalini always found that society ignores the fact that a sex worker is human too, has her own presence, that her existence matters, that her story is worthy of being heard too. That’s what her second novel named, Romantic Encounters of a Sex Worker, explores. She is the coordinator of the Kerala Sex workers Union.
