Kat Banyard and Mia de Faoite

Pimp State

Starlight Stage
How society should respond to the rise of the sex trade is shaping up to be one of the twenty-first century's big questions. Should it be legal to pay for sex? Isn’t it a woman’s choice whether she strips for money? Could online porn be warping the attitudes of a generation of boys?  In Pimp State, leading feminist Kat Banyard argues that the global sex industry poses a grave threat to the struggle for women's equality. Join Kat as she explores the myths surrounding the sex trade with Mia de Faoite - a survivor of prostitution.
