Just Enough Trope 7: Pretty Women

Welcome to the all-new Just Enough Trope, the podcast where we explore the reasons that your favorite media is the way it is. From movies to TV shows to literature to video games, stories are often built around repeated elements and we’re here to talk about them all!

It’s the world’s oldest profession and surprisingly, one of it’s oldest stock characters. But why is the cheery sex worker, a.k.a. the “hooker with a heart of gold”, an archetype that movies, tv, and the stage return to again and again? And how do films like “Pretty Woman” and “Klute” support or smash our idea of the “working girl”? It’s a tough job, but we gotta do it!

She’s faking it ’til she makes it!
