Meet the Naked Anthropologist


Have you heard about Laura Agustin? She addresses sex worker issues, often posting historical documents to support her position that "rescuing" or "rehabilitating" sex workers doesn't work since sex workers often choose their work, enjoy or value it and don't want to be rescued. She also asserts that "human trafficking" as the media portrays it basically doesn't exist. Her perspective comes across on her blog as interesting, always well researched and one we don't often hear in the media frenzy to make a dramatic story. Whether you agree with her standpoint or think she is way off base you should check out her writing.
