A presentation of ongoing research into representations of sex workers & sex work in the media. Examination of the effects of media portrayals of sex workers & the sex worker community, how public perceptions feed into ongoing stigma and discrimination, & how sex worker advocacy can effectively use media analysis to “push back”, creating greater space for sex worker voices and breaking down whorephobia.
