Playing the Whore: Melissa Gira Grant in conversation with Laurie Penny
The Gallery at Foyles is excited to host this conversation with journalist, advocate and former sex worker Melissa Gira Grant, whose new book Playing the Whore: The Work of Sex Work dismantles pervasive myths about sex work, arguing that separating this industry from the 'legitimate' economy only harms those who perform sexual labour. Criticising both conditions within the sex trade and its criminalisation, she argues that we need to shift the focus of debate onto the producers of anti-sex work discourse: police, feminists, politicians and anti-prostitution campaigners.
Publisher Verso unites with Foyles once again to bring you Grant in conversation with feminist journalist and net denizen Laurie Penny, author of Meat Market, Penny Red and the forthcoming Unspeakable Things.
