Authorities in Hamburg are to name a street after Germany’s most famous dominatrix.

Domenica Niehoff, who died in 2009, was a former prostitute who became famous in the 1980s by campaigning for sex workers’ rights. She also worked to help women struggling with drug addiction.

A spokesman for the port city, which is well known for its St Pauli red light district, said on Monday the street in the Altona district was one of 10 being named after famous women.

Jörg Schmoll said others being honoured included the German comic actress Helga Feddersen and the 17th-century Jewish businesswoman and diarist Glückel von Hameln.
