History of Sex Work
Our colleagues down the hall in the Community Education Program of Continuing Studies have just released a fascinating new study:
In 2005, a group of Vancouver-area sex workers came together in partnership with Simon Fraser University in the hope of discovering the history of sex work in the city of Vancouver.
The History of Sex Work: Vancouver project was born out of this partnership as a community art and historical research initiative. It offers alternative perspectives and creates diverse lenses (such as labour and human rights) through which to engage with the sex worker community in Vancouver by examining the rich history of that dynamic community since the incorporation of the City.
