Laura interviews author, journalist, campaigner and survivor Julie Bindel. Julie lived in Leeds at the time and the day before Jacqueline Hill was murdered and close to where she was killed, Julie was followed by a man fitting PS’s description on her way back from the pub.
Julie shares with Laura what happened that night, what it was like living through this in West Yorkshire at the time, the police response, terminology including prostitution vs sex worker, how we prevent male violence and so much more. You will not want to miss this fascinating interview.
Julie has written extensively on rape, domestic violence, sexually motivated murder, prostitution and trafficking, child sexual exploitation and stalking.
Julie wrote the book The Pimping of Prostitution: Abolishing the Sex Work Myth
, is a detailed examination of the global ‘sex workers’ rights’ movement and how the ‘happy hooker’ narrative has come to shape our perceptions - including many women involved in prostitution - of what is misleadingly named as ‘the oldest profession’
