Since the World Whore's Congresses in Amsterdam and in Brussels at the European Parliament in 1985-1986, sex workers have been relentless in protesting laws that criminalize, stigmatize and endanger them.

This reprinting and augmented edition of Congress transcripts, interviews and reports from Europe, South and North America, Asia and Africa testifies to ongoing political struggle and sends out a call for global solidarity from feminist, lesbian, migrant, health, gay, trans, civil rights and human rights movements.

 

COMMENTS ON THE FIRST EDITION

“We are absolutely determined to go as far as the World Court in The Hague to
get our rights honored from the point of view of simple human respect.”
- Carole, Sex Worker from France

“Women of the life, we must speak, we must speak about the life.”
- Gabriela Silva Leite, Sex Worker from Brazil

“All oppressions are linked and prostitutes are at the bottom of the heap. This book should be read by everyone.”
—Florynce Kennedy, Feminist activist, Lawyer, Civil Rights Leader

“I have never read a book like this before. A Vindication is genuinely  radical, courageous and strong.”
—Catharine Stimpson, Founding Editor of Signs: Women in Culture and Society

“This is the book we have been waiting for as a movement, as a gender, as individual women. Wife, mother, whore, dyke—we are all here and we have work to do together.”
—Joan Nestle, Founder of The Lesbian Herstory Archives, New York City
