Description
"Jenness constructs an interesting account of the evolution of the National Task Force on Prostitution, also known as COYOTE (Call Off Your Old Tired Ethics), the most visible organization in the prostitutes' rights movement. Using archival and interview data, she documents the moral, legal, feminist, and medical debates that shaped the organization's claims-making activities across a 20-year period... The book contains a useful bibliography and is well written... Upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals interested in such topics as social movements, deviance, sexuality, women's studies, and the sociology of culture should find the research interesting and useful. Recommended." --J. Lynxwiler, Choice "In the past several decades the United States has witnessed a "revolution of rights" spurred by movements such as civil rights, women's rights, gay rights, children's rights, convicts' rights, victims' rights, animal rights, abortion rights, and rights of the physically and mentally handicapped, of the mentally disturbed, of alcoholics, and of a variety of others. What has characterized these movements has been the demand of minorities and conventionally "deviant" populations for equality of treatment and a recognition of their common status with the rest of American society. In this useful contribution to the literature of social movements and social problems, Valerie Jenness has chronicled the development of the social movement organization Coyote (Call Off Your Old Tired Ethics) into a representative for American prositutes.... [T]his is a valuable study, recommended to students of social movements, social problems, and the interconnectedness of both." --Joseph Gusfield, Contemporary Sociology "This book is successful in presenting the history, issues, and political process involved in an important women's organization. It is highly recommended reading for researchers and teachers in criminology, gender studies, and social issues. Readers will recognize its strength in the empathetic presentation of previously silenced women's voices." --Patricia D. Rozee, Gender and Society "Making It Work is a case study of the prostitutes' rights movement in the U.S. Rather than analyze the growth of the movement in all-too-familiar terms of organization and material resources, Jenness examines the symbolic aspects of the movement and how these defined its rise and development.... [N]ecessary reading for those who wish to round out their understanding of social movements." --Nelson A. Pichardo, Social Forces
