Work Study: Sex Work and the New School Student
Wollman Hall at The New School (66 West 12th St., 5th Fl., Manhattan)
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 New School students and professors count sex work among the jobs they have had to pay the bills. Join moderator Jennifer Baumgardner (Lang writing faculty), writers Audacia Ray and Melissa Febos (both Lang 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.
