scarlet-collar worker

scarlet-collar worker
n.
A woman who owns or operates an Internet pornographic site.
Example Citation:
"Women have seized control of the sex industry and now control more than 50 per cent of pornographic sites in cyberspace.
'Scarlet collar' workers are the feminists of the modern age, say psychologists, free from coercion and the dangers of the traditional, male -dominated business. In the past two years they have moved away from traditional activities such as prostitution and lap dancing to become the majority of cyberporn owners."
— Cherry Norton, "Women Take Control of Cyberporn," The Independent, August 6, 2000
