Leticia Sabsay analyses current sexual borders

By Lisa Pilgram · 14 December 2011

'Progress and Prostitutes'

Interviewed by Claudia Acuña for the Latin American Cultural Magazine MU, Leticia Sabsay reflects on current debates over sex work laws in Argentina.  Through the interview, she questions the way in which public and media discourses have framed the debate on sex work, the moral sentiment of vernacular left progressivism, and the focus on trafficking (which, according to Sabsay, is being used as a political trick against the rights of sex workers).

The full text of the interview is available in Spanish as a PDF document.
