The Disobedient Survivors talk to The Bristol Sex Workers Collective
An urgent discussion in response to the conflicting views around sex work, sexual entertainment venues, sexism and gender-based violence.
About this event:
In light of the recent proposed ban on strip clubs and sexual entertainment venues in Bristol, The Disobedient Survivors are holding a frank and open discussion around the stigmas, stereotyping and misconceptions of sex work.
Prominent Bristol women’s organisations and survivor spaces have spoken out strongly in support of the ban. Because of this, The Disobedient Survivors (a female survivor led platform) see the urgency to stand both in solidarity with women working in the sex industry and to have a space to explore why these groups might hold these particular views.
Speaking directly to Amelie and Chloe, strippers from The Bristol Sex Workers collective, Bryony and Megan (The Disobedient Survivors) hope to explore the misrepresentation of sex work and unpack why there is so much uncomfortability around this topic.
The talk will explore challenging questions and how they relate to issues in Bristol. There will be a Q&A at the end.
We invite everyone to come to this talk as an opportunity to really understand the current situation from those who are most affected by it.
