Cape Town Sex Workers’ Open University Seminar – Sex Work and Feminism

Whores and Other Feminists’ is the first volume to examine sex work and the sex industry through the eyes of self-identified feminist sex workers – strippers, prostitutes, porn writers, producers and performers, dominatrices – and their allies.

Is there room for sex work in feminism? Is there room for feminism in sex work? Can a sex worker call herself/himself a feminist? And what do feminists have to say about that? Join us tomorrow for a Cape Town Sex Workers’ Open University seminar on ‘Sex Work and Feminism’, where feminists and sex workers will be unpacking these and more.
