Sex Workers Digital Library Preserves History of a Movement

Created with the goal of preserving sex worker culture and discourse, the
CSC Sex Worker Media Library is a database of videos by and about sex
workers from around the world. The library is located on-site at CSC and
available for viewing by application only. Project director Carol Leigh
explains, "This resource is designed to assist researchers, scholars and
activists (including sex workers) in their efforts to understand and support
sex workers rights and culture. This resource is sorely needed as we survive
in a world of stigma, discrimination and criminalization. The opening took
place on 31 January 2010 at the Center for Sex & Culture (CSC). Read more
