Dr Brooke Magnanti (Belle De Jour) And Rhoda Grant On Criminalising Sex Work Clients

I’ve previously interviewed Dr Magnanti, about her book released last year, called The Sex Myth: Why Everything We’re Told Is Wrong

More recently she’s been billed to appear at the Brighton Science Festival on the 9th Feb: http://www.brightonscience.com/2013/category/9th-the-sex-myth-with-brooke-magnanti.

Brooke Magnanti (Belle De Jour) and Rhoda Grant appear on Sunday Politics, arguing the case for criminalising the clients of sex workers. Brief introduction by Fiona, who as a journalist, investigates the sex industry in Scotland. Brief interview with Laura Lee (a Scottish sex-worker) is shown. The full interview is available as a pod cast. Check the iusw.org website where it has (will) be posted. Interesting point made, Edinburgh is tolerant of brothels (licenses them), Glasgow has no tolerance and Aberdeen has a middle way. The upcoming single Scottish police authority will bring changes, despite the ill-conceived, dangerous and ineffective legislation Rhoda Grant is trying to implement.
