The faculty discuss research on the significant contribution of pornography and “porn culture” to violence against women. They examine the impact of the pornography industry on the sexual exploitation/coercion and economic oppression of women. Faculty describe challenges to the porn industry and the culture of disdain and subordination of women that it promotes. Organizing initiatives to curtail the pervasive degradation of women through pornography in the media/internet and pop culture will be discussed.
