On January 30, 2023, host David Bell and Lori Watson discuss structures and systems. Lori Watson is Professor of Philosophy at Washington University in St Louis, MO. Her research interests include political philosophy, feminism, philosophy of law and ethics. Therefore, it is no wonder she has been asked to speak on Jaws of Justice. Dr. Watson and David will discuss the intersection of sex work and the criminal justice system through a philosopher’s lens.
We’ll play the calendar in the middle of our hour.
Lori Watson has written books ranging from logic to sex works. As a PhD in philosophy, she loves knowledge and the application of logic to what an individual believes to be true. Please tune in the listen to her thoughts on whether the treatment of sex as a criminal court matter is fairly and logically applied. We look at where we have been, where we are and make plans for a better future.
On Jaws of Justice, we examine how to find justice in our society. Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.
