Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0739123254, Paperback)

Exposing the 'Pretty Woman' Myth presents the lived experiences of women who prostitute themselves on the streets. It is based on research conducted with prostituted women over a six-year period. Author Rochelle Dalla presents case-history analyses of the women participants and opens a window into the world of street-level prostitution. This informative and engrossing book allows for the women's voices to be heard and their stories to be told. Importantly, this is not a book about sex and prostitution, per se. This is a book about prostitutedwomen. It is about the lives and relationships and pivotal occurrences in the developmental trajectories of vulnerable female populations. The women's involvement in street-level sex-work is important, but it is only one segment in the entire spectrum of their lived experiences. Within these pages, Dalla presents the entire spectrum giving the women's lives context and texture, including and beyond prostitution.
