In Episode 24, Melody and Raechel bring you a brief history and discussion of THE SEX WARS! What are the roots of the debate amongst feminists about pornography and sex work? How have these debates influenced in our contemporary feminist landscape?  Who has access to safety in sex work? If all labor is exploitative under capitalism, can sex work ever be empowering? We discuss all this and lots more! PLUS: who’s ruining the dinner party (hint: it’s not Muslim women in burkinis), and our RWLs of the week!
