  3. Anti-Porn is the Theory, Repression is the Practice
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1987   Published: 1989
    The campaign against pornography has been one of the most visible faces of feminism for more than a decade now. Few have wanted to know whether the 'clean up' they were promoting strengthened women's hand or the State's. Thus they have attracted supporters and allies among politicians from the New Right, which governs (among others) the US and the UK, from the old moralizing Left, and even from the trendy Left. Although this anti-porn lobby is not homogeneous, it is rare for any part of it to dissociate itself from the most powerful pro-censorship law-and-order identity.

  33. Sex work: Solidarity not salvation
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2012
    An ongoing debate is taking place in anarchist and feminist circles on the legitimacy of sex work and the rights of sex workers. The two main schools of thought are almost at polar opposites of each other. On the one side you have the abolitionist approach led by feminists, such as Melissa Farley who maintains that sex work is a form of violence against women. Farley has said that "If we view prostitution as violence against women, it makes no sense to legalize or decriminalize prostitution." On the other side you have sex worker rights activists who view sex work as being much closer to work in general than most realize, who believe that the best way forward for sex workers is in the fight for workers' rights and social acceptance and for activists to listen to what sex workers have to say. In this article I will discuss why the abolitionist approach discriminates against sex workers and takes advantage of their marginalized status, while the rights approach offer the opportunity to make solid differences in the labour rights and human rights of sex workers.

    New Perspectives on Migration, Sex Work, and Human Rights

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2005
    This collection of essays underscores the interlocking relationship between prostitution, migration and trafficking. They reveal a deep seated anxiety about borders, economic resources and the fragility of the nation-state. Far from from helping women and children become free from explotaiton, the obession with women sex workers has led to the detriment of all by excluding the questions of human rights, freedon of movement, basics such as food and shelter and a living wage. The book is a call for all those involved -- governments, aid workers and trafickees -- to go beyond a paternalistic and colonial view of these issues and deal with them in a spirit of cooperation.
