Prostitution and Feminism: Living Dangerously in a Post- Honor World / Edition 1by Maggie O'Neill, Maggie O. Neill
Pub. Date: 10/28/2000
Feminists have long differed in their view of prostitution. While some regard it as a classic form of exploitation and degradation, others offer a more sympathetic interpretation of women's involvement in the sex industry. In this important new book, Maggie O'Neill seeks to explore the theoretical debates on prostitution and the relevance of these to the everyday lived experiences of women working on the streets.
