Episode 33 of Pages of Change interviews sex worker, activist and author, Molly Smith, co-author of Revolting Prostitutes: The Fight for Sex Workers Rights. In this episode we talk about the political atmosphere surrounding the book, the need for the sex worker rights movement to approach the topic from a position of intersectional anti-capitalist feminism, and why this book on sex work doesn’t include personal memoir.
Tune in to ‘The Fempire Podcast’ every Friday to hear from out and proud feminist Nicola Brown.
In light of the anti-Page 3 campaign aimed at the The Sun newspaper, Nicola discusses whether or not even the magazines designed specifically for women are degrading.
Today’s show hears Nicola challenging these women’s magazines, by comparing mainstream publications vs. independent ones. Owner of Edinburgh independent magazine store Analogue Books, Julie Nicoll, gives us her thoughts on the issue and we hear from some self-confessed ‘magazine junkies’.
