Making Sex Work

A Failed Experiment With Legalised Prostitution

Unknown - 2007
Rate this:
Backing up theory and critical literature with hard evidence, this book refutes the idea that legalization of prostitution can be anything but a harmful contributor to the commodification of women. It explores the fallacy of the "cottage industry," the role of financial institutions in supporting prostitution, the myth of exit programs, the conflation of legal and illegal sex industries, the problem of applying occupational health and safety standards to prostitution, and the specter of sex trafficking.
