An excellent anthology
on June 2, 2005
"Not for Sale" is a highly readable mix of personal stories and more academic essays, all of them eye-opening, informative, and engrossing. I've studied and taught feminist theory and will be including the text on my syllabus if I teach a relevant course again, but I can also report that my boyfriend, who is not an academic and has no background in feminism, picked it up to glance at it and ended up staying up all night reading. If you want intelligent but accessible analysis of pornography, prostitution, and the connections between them, or if you just want to hear the voices of women who have been personally involved in these abusive industries, check it out!
