As the sex industry is seen to be growing in both size and monetary value, how are women's movements responding to this? Although opposition to the trafficking of women can be seen to unite activists, should other areas of the sex industry be understood as a site for legitimate employment or of exploitation and violence?
A panel of experts will speak on Global Civil Society and the Sex Industry on Thursday 11 March at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
Professor Liz Kelly, director of the Child and Women Abuse Studies Unit, London Metropolitan University
Ana-Maria Lopez, who represents the GMB London Adult Entertainment Branch
Denise Marshall, director of Eaves Housing for Women
Dr Purna Sen, a lecturer in DESTIN and a visiting research fellow at Centre for the Study of Global Governance, LSE
Martin Smith, who represents the GMB London Region
Victoria Brittain from The Guardian will chair this event.
Global Civil Society and the Sex Industry is on Thursday 11 March at 6.30pm in the Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House, LSE, Aldwych, London WC2A. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
