Abstract

Velasco argues that the use of the "traffic in women" discourse in Filipina/o American feminist organizing actually makes the lives of migrant workers more precarious, while contributing to moralistic anti-sex worker policy and rhetoric. While the anti-imperialist framework of Filipina/o American feminism is a useful model for Asian American feminism more broadly, it must remain open to the kinds of "loving" internal critique and debate that are the legacy of women of color feminism.
