The Whore Stigma with Margo St. James and Gail Pheterson

This short clip is from the 1989 conference in San Francisco, the World Whores’ Summit, which is part of Carol Leigh (AKA Scarlot Harlot’s) video, Outlaw Poverty, Not Prostitutes. I posted this after the Sandra Fluke incident, dismayed that the discourse ignored the concept that using the terms slut, prostitute and other such terms as pejoratives, are a way to attack all women. As long as the whore or slut is denigrated, all women are denigrated. (Carol Leigh- 2 min.)
