There are few areas where ‘feminist theory’ is so demonstrably absurd, as in relation to prostitution. And that’s saying something.
Dr Catherine Hakim is a renowned British sociologist to whom we often refer, as the author of a key paper on gender-typical work ethic differences, Preference Theory (2000). Her research revealed that while four in seven British men are work-centred, only one in seven British women is. This clearly has enormous implications for the gender balance we would expect to find in certain professions, and in the senior levels of (for example) large companies.
She’s also written a book on ‘erotic capital’, and today the Institute of Economic Affairs published her discussion paper on prostitution. A link to her short article on the IEA website is here, and you can leave comments there (or here, obviously).
