Barbara Londin speaks with photographer Susan Meiselas about her book "Carnival Strippers." This book is a photo-documentary of the intimate professional and private lives of New England county carnival strippers. Meiselas talks about how she gained entrance into the world of carnival strippers, explains how the world of strippers operates, and about stripping as the objectification of women. The program contains many of Ms. Meiselas' taped conversations of the girls and their "clients." Produced by Barbara Londin for WBAI. Contains sensitive language.
