Deadline Approaching: Alexia Foundation 2014 Women’s Initiative Grant

From 7-9pm young women, ages 15 to 22, prepare for a night of work at the Violin Karaoke bar in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Their job is to sell drinks to customers who book the karaoke rooms; in the neighboring dance club, also part of the Violin, there are cocktail waitresses. However, many are also freelance sex workers or ‘bar girls’ who make their own arrangements with the customers for a ‘date.’ Most of the customers are asian; they are either Thai, Korean, Chinese, or Japanese. The Thai sex industry model is rapidly developing in the Cambodian capitol, Phnom Penh. Tim Matsui

The deadline to apply for the 2014 Women’s Initiative Grant is Monday, June 30th, 2014 at 2 p.m. EST. The grant will provide a $25,000 grant for a project to be produced on a significant issue involving and affecting women. Any photojournalist from anywhere in the world is eligible to submit a proposal.
