Prostitution and sex work

The relationship between sex work/prostitution and feminism is one that is always controversial. Feminist research has found interdisciplinary approaches beyond the question of prohibition or regulation and has developed a wide range of scholarly approaches, which is also reflected in the diverse perspectives of this issue's focus.

The open section includes an analysis of the literary devices of a novel by Kathy Acker, results of a project on masculinity in transition, educational theoretical perspectives on the intertwinement of gender, ethnicity, and religion, and a movement and action historiographical reconstruction of collective bus trips to abortions in the mid-1970s.

Four recent reviews from the context of women's and gender studies conclude the issue.
