"Barbara M. Hobson . . . makes a compelling case for the reform of prostitution policy in . . . "Uneasy Virtue." This volume] demonstrates an effective analytical approach to understanding public policy and its impact on prostitution policy. . . ."Uneasy Virtue" proves particularly relevant today as right wing groups begin to guide discourse and influence policy around reproductive rights, sexuality and the future of gender equality. As Hobson proposes, the reform of prostitution polciy must be viewed in the broader context of the political and economic struggles to emancipate women and thereby create a more rational society."--Samuel Suchowlecky, "Commentaries"
