Agency of Their Own, An

Sex Worker Union Organizing

Sex workers of the world are uniting and fighting to gain control over their working lives.


CATEGORIZED IN

This book concerns the projects and processes of sex worker unionisation and more widely forms of sex worker self-interest representation. Since the late 1980s, sex workers have unionised themselves as collective associations of workers in their worksites in many countries. The term ‘sex workers’, chosen by sex workers themselves, is a generic one covering all those who sell sexual services and comprises prostitutes, exotic dancers, porn actors and sex chat line workers.
