The authors we read this module help us better understand some of the complexities of sex work. Rose emphasizes making space for a diversity of sex worker experiences and resisting the dominance of the discourse of the injured body of the sex worker. Hunt emphasizes the historical relationship between the Indian Act, colonial stereotypes, and the current landscape of Indigenous sex work.  While coming from very different positionalities, both authors emphasize centering the voices of sex workers and resisting paternalistic solutions rooted in stigmatic assumptions. As with any issue, when it comes to sex work, it is crucial to not homogenize an entire group and to acknowledge a diversity of experiences.
