About the Author

Sharon S. Oselin is Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of California, Riverside.


"Leaving Prostitution is a major contribution to our understanding of sex work. Through an in-depth examination of organizations that help women transition out of street prostitution, Sharon Oselin sheds light on a dimension of sex work that has rarely been researched. The book illuminates both the organizational dynamics of different agencies and the conditions involved in the process of exiting prostitution. No other book examines this topic in such depth."-Ronald Weitzer, author of Legalizing Prostitution: From Illicit Vice to Lawful Business
