Abstract

The article presents a response to an article "Women's Studies in Sin City: Reactionary Politics and Feminist Possibilities," by Lois Helmbold published in the National Women's Studies Association (NSWA) Journal. It has been said that Las Vegas' political economy is distinct because it is generally built on women's labor. It has one of the highest unionized service industries in the nation and, thus, it would be possible for women in Las Vegas to earn livable wages because of high-paying service jobs.
