All the articles are worth reading but several really stood out to me based on my interests and experiences and questions. Gail Dines addresses racism in pornography -- something worth discussing like we would discuss any other media racism. A great speech from Andrea Dworkin is included that will touch the inner core of anyone who has or knows someone who has been abused. Donna Hughes writes about the abuse that the use of new communication technology has been used for. foe example, the exploitation of women and children through online techonology..
DA Clarke writes an article that would be a good one to read if you have an interest in leftists thought. Mary Lucille Sullivan questions about how successful safety codes in Austrailian brothels really are. Christine Stark's Girlz To Boyz article challenges just what is radical about sex radical feminists and is that movement actually harmful to women? Fans of Ariel Levy's Female Chauvinist Pigs might enjoy this chapter especially. Ann Simonton and Carol Smith sit down to discuss "who are the women in pornography", with Carol sharing a very powerful story. This book includes insightful men such as Robert Jenson to also address the men out there who are consuming the women. The book ends with Leslie R Wolfe's powerful speech "Fighting war against sexual trafficking of women and girls." There is so much good stuff......Read it!!!!!!!!
The word "feminist" has become the other four letter word. No one likes to say that they are or may be one. It's even an insult in many social circles. I however, am proud to say that I am one of the dwindling few young women that still respects myself.
I can't even drive to work, turn on the radio, watch T.V. without being reminded constantly about the fact that women are seen as ojects to be bought and sold. This book helps me believe that I am not alone in what I see and hear every single day.
My only hope is that others will start to not only see what is going on, but help in the war against it. It seems to be a losing battle, but I'm willing to stand up and fight, even if I am the only one I know on this side.
There are some recommendations - Provide more practical resources and assistance for women wanting to escape prostitution and pornography. Tell the truth about the harm to women involved in the sex industry. Some other policy decisions would be informed, but are not clearly delineated, in this book. Anyone wanting to work with others in their community to reduce pornography and prostitution and the harm caused by them could benefit by reading this book.
