Pole Dancer & Eve On 'today'

9 posts in this topic

Radio 4's 'Today' programme ran an interview today (28 June) with a Pole Dancer who said she really enjoyed the job and was very happy doing it. They then interviewed someone from Eve who insisted on talking about prostitution. The interviewer tried to bring her back onto the interview topic but this was ignored and she carried on talking about prostitution and violence against women.

 

We all understand interviewees will push their own agenda on programmes like 'Today' but the Eve representative's  behaviour was well over the top. It is also disgraceful that the interviewer let her get get away with such blatent agenda shifting. I can only hope the listeners realised what she was doing.

Political polemic cares little for proper discourse, so Eve and the rad-fems do these interviews to simply reiterate the simplistic and prejudicial messages they want the public to remember.

I caught the tail end of this. The woman from Eve starting banging on about how prostitutes are 4 times as likely to be murdered, attacked, raped etc. 4 times more than what?

Sorry 12 times more than the general female population.

so if we had proper labour protection and could organise as associaitions maybe we could better resist such violence. and remember for many WG in other countries it is the police who are the source of the violence.

Whats Eve?

I think it was "Eaves" - the Poppy project people.

Below is a link to the story, which to be fair did involve escort agencies as well as pole dancing. Nonetheless, the benefit losing argument has got to be the most torturous piece of logic I have heard in a long while.
