Sex Sells, But Should We Sell Sex?

http://islandia.law.yale.edu/reblaw/panels.htm

This panel will examine prostitution, the world¹s oldest profession, addressing the social and legal issues that surround it, including various legal approaches to prostitution, such as prohibition, legalization, and decriminalization. By taking a worker safety and public health perspective to the issue of prostitution, and focusing on the human rights and dignity of sex workers, the panelists will shed light on legal approaches that disenfranchise, endanger, and force underground those who through choice or circumstance labor in the sex industry. The panel will discuss the need for legal change to best protect the human rights and dignity of sex workers as well as the public.

  1. I’ll definitely make it a point to come, but I’ll wait outside the panel if I have to pay to get in. It will be enough for the train ticket.

    Be lookin’ forward to seeing Veronica again and meeting Maxine for the first time.

  2. we’ll get you in.
    no worries

  3. I wish I could attend, but I’m in a different part of the country. Is anybody going to videotape this and post it online?

  4. I was at the presentation, and it was quite excellent. The audience was made of law students, who were respectful to the panelists and asked intelligent questions. A few of these law students expressed interest in working in the sex worker rights movement. Take a look at the videos and enjoy.

  5. Thanks Susan, it so nice to meet you and put a face to the name. So often I think in our virtual world, the human element of connection is missing and it really effects our relationships in detrimental ways. Writing in this format leaves out the inflection in our voices and facial expressions that convey our humanity.

  6. Thank you so much for the links to the videos, Maxine.
