Francine Tremblay and Sarah Beer trace the emergence and activities of Stella, a health and social services nonprofit created by sex worker rights’ activists in Montreal, Canada. Drawing on social movement theory and multi-method qualitative research, the authors consider how Stella’s engagement with the policy process benefited and compromised their broader struggle for the political recognition and de-stigmatization of persons engaged in prostitution.
