Feminist Review of Hustlers – Feminist Frequency Podcast – Ep. 96

In December of 2015, an article was published in New York Magazine that told an amazing story. In the wake of the 2008 Wall Street collapse, a group of women who worked at the New York strip club Scores saw the men and the money stop coming in, so they devised a risky, unconventional, and illegal way to make the money come in. Now the true story of these women and their criminal endeavor is the subject of the new film Hustlers. Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria, the film stars Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu and charts the spectacular rise and fall of a criminal enterprise that tells us a great deal about wealth and power in the early 21st century.
