Have you heard of this book? I hadn’t till someone tipped me off to it. This is an interesting book that’s features characters with powerful stories a la “Valley of the Dolls” but position those characters in the tawdry world of stripping. While we know what we have seen on TV and in movies, this book brings the story of women who are stuck in their jobs because it was the means to their survival.

STRIP CLUBS GET AWAY WITH EXPLOITING DANCERS EVERY DAY!
FOR THESE WOMEN, “DANCING FOR DOLLARS” WAS THEIR ONLY MEANS OF SURVIVAL
A story of Empowerment, Inspiration and Triumph!!
What do Catherine Zeta-Jones, Lady Gaga, Anna Nicole Smith, Courtney Love, Amber Rose, to name a few, all have in common? Before they were famous, they were strippers – dancing for dollars.
Academy Award-winning Screenwriter Diablo Cody (“Juno”) says
“It’s no secret that I was once a Minneapolis strip club dancer. Hell, I still go by my stage name and I’m not the least bit ashamed.
“Dancing For Dollars” has taken social media sites by storm. Within three weeks, the numbers have soared to hundreds of thousands of impressions
“Strippers are human beings yet, all over the world, they are subjected to the worst sexual harassment imaginable,” says accomplished author, Victoria Howard. “You’ve seen exotic dancers in movies and television shows —usually they’re depicted as degraded, down on their luck, stuck in an abusive relationship, and just possibly in possession of a heart of gold. The stereotypes about sex workers and strippers are entrenched in our culture, and they can make it hard to see the reality behind images of thigh-high boots and fishnet stockings,” adds Howard.
Published by Author House, “Dancing For Dollars” introduces you to four extraordinary women from diverse backgrounds who meet at an upscale Gentleman’s Club in South Florida.
There’s Mika, a beautiful, young Geisha who was ostracized from her home and country because her family did not believe her rape accusations;
Francesca, the good Italian Catholic girl who gets pregnant in high school and is forced to give up her baby;
Bella, the brilliant Swedish student, kicked out of her home and University for having an affair with her female professor;
Gorgeous Abigail who suffered great mental and physical abuse because she was born an hermaphrodite.
Go behind the curtains and meet the Johns, the junkies, the rich & powerful through the eyes of Francesca, Mika, Bella & Abigail.
Survival is the name of the game and these girls know how to win!
“These characters are relatable, inspirational and empowering. Mika eventually becomes THE Madam to the Rich & Famous; Bella opens the #1 modeling agency in Manhattan; Francesca becomes Hollywood’s newest sex symbol and marries a producer and Abigail – well, you’ll have to read the book!” laughs Howard.
Striptease is no longer an art form. It has evolved into one of the final resting grounds for legal sexual harassment.
“Dancing For Dollars” is available on Amazon for $20.99 and Kindle for $3.99. To purchase, please visit:
