Soccer player Valeria fights for the ball against a defender from a team of female police officers.
Valeria, a striker for the team "Stars of the Tracks" (C) fights for the ball against a defender from a team of female police officers, October 16, 2004 in Guatemala City. The prostitute team has received heavy national media coverage since being kicked out of an elite amateur league after their first game in September, as they seek to draw attention to their poor working conditions. The women get paid as little as $2.50 for sex and complain of frequent police harassment, despite their profession being legal and widespread in Guatemala. The players plan to set up an organization to defend their rights, especially in custody battles. On Saturday, they lost their five-a-side game by a score of 3-1 against a police soccer team.
