"Governing Sex Work And Prostitution: Documenting First-Hand Accounts From Participants In Prostitution Diversion Programs" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the National Women's Studies Association, Hilton Baltimore, Baltimore, MD, Nov 16, 2017 <Not Available>. 2019-12-11 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1268340_index.html>

Abstract: Scholars have long debated the appropriate role of the state in the sex industry, but the lived experiences of sex workers "caught up" in these policies are rarely acknowledged. Poverty and race shape experiences of state-based governance. Completing a prostitution “diversion” program can significantly impact employability, the likelihood of jail or prison time, and parental rights. As feminist scholars and advocates of women’s rights, what can, and should, we expect from state-based programs that seek to govern our sexualities, work, and livelihoods?

Abstract: This paper challenges existing feminist theory of prostitution in the Gold Rush era American West by arguing that while for many women, sex work may have been less than wholly voluntary or pleasurable, for some women during the Gold-Rush era, prostitution did offer a way to both transgress social boundaries and gain economic and social independence.

"“Getting Out: An analysis of exiting street prostitution via prostitution helping programs”" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, TBA, New York, New York City, Aug 11, 2007 Online <PDF>. 2019-12-11 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p181917_index.html>

Abstract: In the social science literature, there is a significant amount of research on the sex industry and prostitutes in particular. Most of these studies focus on the legal concerns, stigma or the daily lives of female prostitutes. Surprisingly, there is a paucity of work examining the process and means through which women exit prostitution. One study (Dalla 2000) claims prostitutes exit primarily via intervention programs. This study uses this work as a point of departure to analyze the motivations and pathways through which women leave the trade.

Abstract: Historically, prostitution among juvenile females has been largely misunderstood, trivialized, or ignored. Increased attention has been directed toward juvenile female delinquency, particularly related to their overlap in status as victims and offenders. There are areas in this research that continue to be underinvestigated, especially with regard to commercially sexually exploited girls and public perceptions of this population. The current study uses a sample of survey questionnaires to examine subject perceptions of blameworthiness and appropriate criminal justice responses for female juvenile prostitutes, while considering prostitute race and prior victimization history. Future research directions are discussed.
