Amnesty International understands what Lena Dunham apparently doesn’t: women own their own bodies. Outlawing sex work is just another way in which the State exerts its control over women’s bodies (as most sex workers are women).

Speaking for other women rather than listening to them is a habit that seems to haunt white feminism.
