BARRERO, Gloria Patricia Díaz. Stripers, erotic and exotic dancers: immigration and identity in the construction of the canadian nation-State. Cad. Pagu [online]. 2005, n.25, pp.129-152. ISSN 1809-4449.

This article discusses how the migration of Latin American women to work in the sex trade, specifically as exotic dancers, as temporary workers is framed within a specific context of Canadian immigration policies, uneven economic relationships between North America and Latin America, racial and racist constructions and sexist gender relations where sex work is one of the few working possibilities that women have.

Keywords : Migration; Exotic Dancers; Striptease; Canada; Sex Work.
