This collection of essays spans ten years (1984-94) of theoretical and activist work on prostitution and offers a critique of "prostitute" and "prostitution." That critique touches on issues of migration, the right to asylum, street kids, and -- especially crucial to the volume -- the stigma attached to being a "whore" as an official and traditional mechanism of social control.
