What I’m Reading

The Pimping of Prostitution by Julie Bindel, a mustread to comprehend the global trade in children and women’s bodies, how men’s demand to buy younger and younger females is socialisation, not inevitable, why for the majority – the pimped homeless girls, now with criminal records, the women in abject poverty – there is no choice. As Ricky Gervais said it in The After Life, it’s not ‘sex work’ it’s prostitution – and as the survivors at Space International will tell you, it’s male violence against women and girls.
