It ususally means they are in favour of legalising prostitution. Hope it goes well!

Could the pro sex worker mean they are in favour of changing the legislation and make it a criminal offence for someone to buy sex but not to sell it.

Both Sweden and Ireland have this model.

Personal I'd love to see any kind of sex work left in the history books.

Will you let us know how you get on. (I'd love to go to a feminist meet up).

Stick kudos to you for going! I'm afraid I can't help much with parsing out their position on prostitution. I bailed out of RL politics quite a long time ago because I was sick of the People's Front of Judea / Judean People's Front aspects (I know that ages me). I'd love to get involved in something now but I think it will need to be single issues to avoid this sort of thing. That's a shame really because often an overall perspective is very helpful. One of the things I like about this board is hearing a range of different feminist perspectives.

Please keep us posted if you decide to go back.

I had a look at the website Stick and I'm going to assume they are not against prostitution. It's not explicit but the combination of "sex positive" and "pro sex workers rights" suggests this to me.

I read the review of Naomi Wolff's book and the statement "Unlike many of her younger contemporaries, Wolf has not learnt an important lesson from the history of the movement" is enough to put me off. I can't stand Naomi Wolff and it's ironic that Wolff made her career from criticising older feminists is now facing the same thing from younger feminists but I don't like it. In 10 years another group will come along and say the same thing about this group.
