Doll of the Week: Darma

This week’s doll is inspired by a strong, active, and loving entity, Antonia Levy. Ms. Levy kindly answered some questions about herself and her work around sexual liberation and women's rights.

Ms. Levy is a PhD candidate and adjunct lecturer at the City University of New York. Her research interests include political sociology, gender and sexuality, social movements and activism, as well as visual sociology; her thesis focuses on a comparison of the polyamory movement in the US and Germany.

Her work as social justice activist centers around issues related to women’s liberation and sexual rights, labor, as well as community media. Antonia has researched and published on the global sex workers' rights movement in which she helped organized a conference and then published a book including materials from the conference.

Currently, she is a member of the PapertigerTV collective and a part-time organizer for her union, the Professional Staff Congress at CUNY. She has been co-chair of several academic/activist conferences and workshops, including Sex Work Matters: Beyond Divides and the Second Annual Feminist Pedagogy Conference. In Ms. Levy’s free time she indulges in her two passions: chocolate and photography.

Here are some glimpses of her magical photography.
For more information on Sex Work Matters, you can find it here on Amazon.

Enjoy printing and painting this freedom warrior’s doll!
