To Live Freely In This World: Sex Worker Activism in Africa
Please join us for a conversation with Chi Adanna Mgbako, author of To Live Freely in This World: Sex Worker Activism in Africa and Clinical Professor of Law in the Leitner Center for International Law and Justice at Fordham Law School, and Kholi Buthelezi, long-time South African sex worker activist and National Coordinator of Sisonke.
Based on original fieldwork in seven African countries, To Live Freely in This World is the first book to fully document the sex workers’ rights movement in Africa. As mainstream human rights organizations begin to call for the full decriminalization of sex work, join us for a discussion about the history, challenges, and successes of one of the most vibrant and fastest-growing segments of the global sex workers’ rights struggle. Moderated by Professor Susan Farbstein.
