Not For Sale: Feminists Resisting Prostitution and Pornography

£11.99

Product description

As prostitution and pornography increasingly saturate our lives and our communities, they are also becoming normalised and accepted as harmless entertainment for men and as legitimate, even liberating, forms of work for women. Not For Sale brings the feminist movement against prostitution and pornography into the 21st century, showing how these industries cause grievous harm to those within them while undermining the possibilities for gender justice, human equality, and truly diverse and joyful sexual relationships. The essays collected here connect feminist perspectives on the sex industry with radical critiques of racism, poverty, militarism, and unbridled corporate capitalism, and show how the harms of prostitution and pornography are amplified by contemporary technologies of mass communication. Bringing together research, testimony, and theory by more than thirty writers and activists from different countries and generations, including a number of courageous industry survivors, the book is both a vital contribution to ongoing debates and a call to action and resistance.
