Presented as part of John Jay College's Fall 2014 Sex Work Initiative: http://bit.ly/1sMrd9Q.

Samantha Majic’s research lies in gender and American politics, with specific interests in sex work, civic engagement, institutionalism, and the nonprofit sector. She is the author of Sex Work Politics: From Protest to Service Provision, and the co-editor of Negotiating Sex Work: Unintended Consequences of Policy and Activism. Her research has also appeared/is forthcoming in Perspectives on Politics, Polity, New Political Science, The Journal of Women, Politics and Policy, and Gender and Society.

In Sex Work Politics, Samantha Majic investigates the way non-profit organizations negotiate their governmental obligations while maintaining their commitment to outreach and advocacy for sex workers’ rights as well as broader sociopolitical change. Majic comes to a surprising conclusion that it is indeed possible to maintain effective advocacy and key social movement values, beliefs, and practices, even while partnering with government agencies.
