Read an excerpt from the book HERE. It goes well beyond raging at the crimes perpetrated against women and girls, although there is a great deal of justified rage at the heart of this book. It is a thorough refutation of the myths peddled by the pro-prostitution lobby. It has always been to her credit that when Bindel believes in something that runs counter to accepted narratives, she is not reluctant to talk about it, or indeed stand up and shout it through a bullhorn.
Unlike many of her critics, she has not formed her arguments from behind a screen in London or New York but in brothels and on street corners, in halfway houses and hospitals, talking to women who have experienced the sex trade firsthand. In that, her book is a work of journalism—not polemic. There is no necessity for sex trade. They might actually learn to have sex with someone who wants to have sex with them too.
Bold, brilliant and brave. This is Julie Bindel at her best, demolishing the myths around prostitution and asking us to listen to survivors, the women and men who know the ugly reality first-hand.
Julie Bindel knows violence against women when she sees it. In this amazing investigative book, she manages to break through the mist and exposes the realities of how the sex trade actually works — and who it benefits. Every word in this long-awaited book is worth reading. It combines scholarship, activism, personal narratives and political analysis. This book is persuasive, clear, revealing and very powerful.
It brilliantly exposes the outright abuse and misogyny at the heart of a worldwide system in which men and boys control, buy, sell, rent and use women and girls. Are we facing a crisis in free speech? Are there limits on what we can talk about, campaign for, criticise and debate? In association with.
