In Strip Clubs, The Case For Nudity As Free Speech

Nov 27, 2017

A coalition of strip clubs in Atlanta are currently suing the state of Georgia over a new tax law. The bill, which went into effect this year, requires strip clubs to give one percent of their revenue to help curb child sex trafficking. The Georgia Association of Club Executives argues the tax is unconstitutional because it prohibits free speech--in this case, dancers exposing their naked bodies. We discuss this suit with Eric Segall, Constitutional Law Professor at Georgia State University.
