Question description

Assignment extract:
Study Kit:( I've attached files,please check them. Thanks)

Answer ONE of the following questions:


1. Historically, why has prostitution been difficult to define and/ or regulate?
2. How did Victorian-era debates about prostitution reinforce or challenge the 
sexual double standard?

3. What historical lessons does Walkowitz draw from feminist campaigns to 
repeal the Contagious Diseases Acts? Do you agree?

4. Levine argues prostitution in the British colonies was interpreted and 
managed differently to prostitution in Britain itself. Why?
NOTE: In devising your answer, draw on a combination of lecture notes, readings from the study kit and where relevant, discussion in class. As a rough guide, aim for 250 words. Obviously this is a short answer, and it is therefore especially important to answer the question directly and concisely. Not all readings for that particular week will be directly relevant to the question, so do not feel pressure to massage a particular reading (or even the lecture) into your answer if it does not seem to fit. The response should be properly referenced. You are not expected to read beyond the study kit to answer your question, but if you do please reference your source.
