The Real Lives of Working Women in a Fantasy Town

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, waitresses, wives, cabdrivers, construction workers, casino executives, and showgirls, who struggle against the sex-object stereotype—and whose stories reveal there's always more to the girl than show.
