Prostitution: Economic Savvy or Economic Slavery?

Posted by Jack Stephens on July 8, 2007

Third-wave feminists for the most part ignore or gloss over the social and economic conditions that lead to prostitution…For third-wave feminists, it is the prostitute, not the john who has the morally (and perhaps economically) superior position in the relationship. Yet the voices of the third wave are the voices of privileged women who have the time, education and economic ability to write for publication.
