Kaytlin Bailey is an activist, scholar, and provocateur who shines light on a glaring blindspot in the movement to empower women. Kaytlin is the Founder & Executive Director of Old Pros, host of The Oldest Profession Podcast, and the writer/performer of the one woman show Whore’s Eye View.
How can we fight for bodily autonomy, self determination and economic inclusion yet ignore the plight of millions who choose sex work as a means of moving their lives forward? Allowing the systemic, sanctioned policing of women’s bodies and their choices creates a stigmatized, criminalized class of women and leaves the door open for the creeping rollbacks on women’s rights that we are seeing today.
Weaving history, comedic storytelling, and the wisdom of lived experience, Kaytlin artfully unpacks the complex, age-old stigma underpinning a status quo designed to keep women in their place. Kaytlin’s eye opening message is a compassionate, clarion call, a crash course in history, and a game changing roadmap for progress that can be sustained once and for all.
