Sex Work & Feminism - All About Women (Auslan)
Accessible Performances • 1h 6m
Beyond the binary of exploited or empowered.
With Tilly Lawless, Jules Kim and Chantell Martin.
Presented at All About Women, 7 March 2021, 2:15pm AEST
Sex workers are tired of being spoken for. You're invited to listen to these voices from the sex worker community and consider why feminism needs to develop a more nuanced view of the oldest profession.
Sex work and feminism have long had a troubled relationship. Historically, many feminists claimed women were either empowered or exploited, often reproducing wider culture's dehumanised caricatures of glamorous stripper heels or unnamed murder victims. Isn’t it time we had more nuance?
Join sex workers in this essential event to discuss the complexities of a frequently misunderstood industry, and its place within the women's movement. From emotional and physical labour, economic realities, and the fight to protect sex workers' rights in the age of COVID, these voices need to be heard.
Supported by the Scarlet Alliance.
First broadcast Sunday March 7 2021.
Duration: approx 60 minutes.
Rental period: 30 days
