Jackie Lynne, a Métis woman, a social worker, and an exited prostitute, who has been researching prostitution academically since 1998, speaks about her experiences of abuse, rape, and internalized racism and how those experiences led to her entry into prostitution. She links the continuum of male violence and colonialism to the current situation of prostitution in Canada and sees a solution in the Nordic model.
The talk took place at an event hosted by Indigenous Women Against the Sex Industry (IWASI), on April 18, 2013 at the Vancouver Public Library.
