This paper deals with the life of prostitutes as a marginalized group in the city of Zagreb at the beginning of the 20th century, as well as with the very phenomenon of prostitution. The daily life and supervision of prostitutes was originally regulated by the Prostitution Rulebook from 1899. The second such document was the Regulation of royal constabulary directorate from 24th of September in 1922., No. 11.027 on the Prostitution in the City of Zagreb, by which the life of prostitutes in brothels had been drastically changed, and their status was now equal to the one of the street prostitutes. The biggest change in their life was the abolition of prostitution by the Act on the Suppression of Sexual Diseases from 28th of March in 1934. Consequently, all women who continued to engage in prostitution were now placed in the sphere of illegal, secret prostitution. Even though, secret prostitution also existed during the time when prostitution was legal, in this period its numbers have soared. Apart from legal regulations, the life of a prostitute was portrayed with the help of excerpts from the daily press and the works of other contemporaries.
