This reading group will consider the most crucial questions raised by prostitution today, including its nature, relation to trafficking and pornography, and how the institution affects womens' and childrens' lives around the world. Beginning with Nawal El Saadawi's "Woman at Point Zero," we inquire into what is known and not known about the sex industry and consider domestic and international legal and policy approaches to its criminalization, decriminalization, regulation, and abolition.
