about

Whores and Other Feministsfleshes out feminist politics from the perspective of sex workers--strippers, prostitutes, porn writers, producers and performers, dominatrices--and their allies. Comprising a range of voices from both within and outside the academy, this collection draws from traditional feminisms, postmodern feminism, queer theory, and sex radicalism. It stretches the boundaries of contemporary feminism, holding accountable both traditional feminism for stigmatizing sex workers, and also the sex industry for its sexist practices.

Feminism sorely needs exactly what is provided in this book."-"Journal of American and Comparative Cultures "Nagle has definitely broken new ground and established one of many stances of 'third wave' feminism. "Whores and Other Feminists is fascinating and liberating."-"The Lesbian Review of Books, Spring 1999 "This book provides a welcome change from the more familiar puritanical version of feminism."-"In These Times
