[callout title=‘Sex, Work, and Sex Work:
Building a feminist analysis and a feminist struggle’] Sunday, 14th Feb, 4-7pm at The Foundry, 86 Great Eastern St
London EC2A 3JL (nearest tube Old Street).
What does understanding sex work as labour bring to our analysis of prostitution? How might it change the way sex workers and feminists fight exploitation and violence? When is sex work and when is it play? What new ways of ‘workplace’ organizing need to emerge in order to engage with other forms of ‘affective’ labour or care work?[/callout]
[callout title=Estrellas de la Linea (2006)] Join us for our film screening of ‘Estrellas de la Linea’ (2006) at 4pm – documentary about Guatemala City sex workers who form a football team to challenge stigmatisation and fight exploitation.
