Working Girls is a 1986 independent film, written, produced and directed by Lizzie Borden, depicting a day in the life of upper class prostitutes in a small Manhattan bordello. It is considered a subtly feminist portrayal, focusing on strong women characters, and depicting prostitution as neither glamorous nor repellent, but rather an ordinary, if exhausting, job.

It was nominated for the 1987 Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, and won the Special Jury Prize.
