About this title

Synopsis:

Exploring the shared intersections of mothering, motherhood and sex work, Mothers, Mothering and Sex Work weaves together a range of voices from academic and sex-worker communities around the world. It features interdisciplinary contributions, scholarly essays, academic research, artwork, poetry, photography and experiential narratives. Notable among these are two modern masterpieces from literary legends: Voices, a short story by Alice Munro and excerpts from Maya Angelou s autobiography Gather Together in my Name. In the spirit of the adage nothing about us without us, Mothers, Mothering and Sex Work brings together unique and controversial viewpoints defying conventional wisdom to provide fresh insights into sex workers and their rights. Beginning with the political, legal and social context of sexuality and gender in Canada, the book s focus widens to explore issues affecting sex workers worldwide.

Review:

Mothers, Mothering and Sex Work is a much-needed intervention that illuminates the intersectional challenges facing mothers involved in sex work, and their children, extended families and communities. Taking a transdisciplinary approach, the creative-critical anthology engages with the resistance, resilience, joy and humour that sex-working mothers demonstrate in the face of stigma, oppression and sex work-phobic maternal discourses. --Ummni Khan, Associate Professor, Carleton University

This path-breaking anthology challenges readers and scholars to rethink their notions of mother work and sex work. Sex work is more than sex, and mothering is much more than an occupational hazard of sex work. Whether they have borne children or not, the contributors reveal the many ways that women on society s margins are governed through shame, stigma, economic precarity, welfare discipline, and carceral regimes. Mothers, Mothering and Sex Work draws out, in multidisciplinary fashion, the consanguinities of gendered labor under racialized patriachy and neoliberal capitalism. This is required reading that demands attention. --Melinda (Mindy) Chateauvert, Author of Sex Workers Unite! A History of the Movement from Stonewall to Slutwalk

This book will undoubtedly be a great resource for current and former sex workers who need to see themselves represented somewhere in the culture they live in, as well as for sensitive outsiders who would like to gain more reliable information about sex work than any mainstream television documentary or magazine article is likely to provide. A short review can not do justice to this book. you will simply have to read it yourself. --Jean Hillabold, Instructor, Department of English, University of Regina
