Demanding Victims

The Sympathetic Shift in British Prostitution Policy

(p.77) Chapter 4 Demanding Victims
Negotiating Sex Work

Hill Annie

University of Minnesota Press

Annie Hill explores how the legal position of the prostitute has moved from being an “immoral nuisance” to a “victim of gender violence” in British prostitution policy. Employing a Foucauldian discursive analysis, Hill examines why and how this shift occurred by examining Paying the Price, a British Home Office report describing prostitution as violence against women and arguing for proactive policing of prostitution to combat this violence..
