Many prostitutes leave their home countries thinking they are going to have a career in dance (or modelling), only to end up in brothels and strip clubs. Some of the sex workers may be in the business voluntarily but many are coerced into it. When you find yourself in a strange country with no money, no place to stay and no contacts except the people who tricked you there, you will find it rather difficult to stand up for yourself.
Judging by their reactions, the by-passers took the message to heart.
