Working Girls Film Poster


A seminal film in the feminist canon, director Lizzie Borden's depiction of the daily grind of work in a middle-class Manhattan brothel. Made on a budget of $120,000 on Super 16mm 'Working Girls' presents a day-in-the-life of Yale-educated lesbian Molly who by choice works as a prostitute. The film focuses on the daily minutae of Molly's profession as a way of asking the question: is prostitution a job like any other? Widely condemned by both pro-censorship feminists and right-wing critics alike, it is an important film which challenges cinematic conventions in the depiction of femininity and sexuality.
