From her award-winning Reason cover story “The War on Sex Trafficking Is the New War on Drugs” to her hardboiled quantitative reporting on modern vice squads, Elizabeth Nolan Brown is your gal for smart, readable journalism about sex policy and politics. Her work was cited throughout an amicus brief in the Backpage.com First Amendment case that later got called out favorably by Judge Richard Posner in his decision siding with Backpage. Also, sex columnist Dan Savage quotes her.
Basically, she knows her sex policy stuff. And a beat like Brown’s is pretty much only possible at Reason, where we understand and love sex and commerce in equal measure.
