I purchased this book in October of 2012 for an English research paper I wrote about how prostitution affects sex workers. It was, at the time, the only trustworthy academic resource I could find. It was a little hard for me to buy as a poor starving college student--I was just using it for writing an English paper--at least I thought so back then. Miss Farley has become my go-to source of information since. Now I find myself haunted by the facts and figures and moving halfway across the country to study social work, and some of my drive to do so is because of the things that kept me awake at night from reading this book.
I have not even come close to reading every page. I've thumbed through it and used what I needed for my paper. I had about a dozen books and this was by far the most useful. It is well organised, and you can easily find what you want without reading every single word leading up to it. I quote stats from it all the time. I refer back to it frequently. I foresee it being quite handy in my next two years studying social work.
I highly recommend shelling out the money for this book, and keeping it around. Great reference materials for anyone who is an advocate, a student, or if you happen to like statistics or have an interest in the subject.
It forces each one to consider how each of us and our very culture tolerates an acceptance of such violence. One must think about the sytems driving such inhumanity toward women.
A must read for all who want to challenge and expand their own critical thinking about human rights and human dignity.
