    Since its earliest days, Las Vegas has depended on women. It's a city where the female body is more an object of commerce than anywhere else in America. This video goes behind the Showgirls mythos to tell the true story of real women who live and work in Las Vegas, the mothers, maids, wives, casino executives and showgirls, who struggle against the sex-object stereotype. In the midst of a city that flaunts sex, prostitution and pornography, Stripped and Teased profiles a variety of working women-including a hotel maid, a construction worker, a cocktail waitress, a cabdriver, a Congresswoman, a casino executive, a labor union leader, and a showgirl-whose stories reveal that there's always more to the girl than show.

    "Stripped and Teased is a smart, delightful and sorely needed look at the real women of Las Vegas, who turn out to be far more entertaining and thought-provoking than the fantasy showgirls we are served up on the Hollywood screen."-Susan Faludi, author, Backlash: The Undeclared War Against American Women

    "Williams has made a film that not only takes us behind the Hollywood and marketing stereotypes of Vegas women, but delivers a deeply resonant portrait of female strength and endurance that women everywhere can relate to and appreciate."-Las Vegas Weekly
