This past fall, New York Post headlines decried the “Hooker Teacher!”–a tenured public school teacher who is also a graduate of the New School. Amid the myths and sensationalism is the plain fact that many students and professors count sex work among the jobs they have had to pay the bills.
Join the “Hooker Teacher” Melissa Petro, moderator Jennifer Baumgardner (feminist author and activist), writers Audacia Ray and Melissa Febos (both New School graduates), Niesha Davis (a current student), and others, including advocacy groups, to discuss sex work, feminism, and why an open conversation about sex work is critical now. Co-sponsored by Gender Studies, Lang@25, n+1, and Paradigm Shift.
