Title: Anti-pornography women’s consciousness raising meeting
Location: London Action Resource Centre, 62 Fieldgate Street Whitechapel London E1 1ES
Description: Mainstream pornography is increasingly extreme and violent. It is shaping how young men are learning how to have sex, altering women’s relationship to our bodies and sexuality and telling youth in general that this is what sex is.
What impacts have the world’s 5th biggest industry had on our lives as women?
‘Alternative pornography’ notwithstanding, how do we feel about the reality of the first 30,000 items on any pornography search?
Many people are concerned about being women being portrayed as toys, objects, playthings for men’s amusement. Many feel that pornography is not harmless or inevitable. Some on the left connect the inexorable rise of pornography with increased state control, violent male economic, political and sexual entitlement and increased political repression generally.
Do you have thoughts about this, experiences that you don’t normally share or ideas about how to combat pornification?
Come along to our consciousness raising session, where we will create a safe, supportive environment where we can speak and be heard about how pornography has affected us individually and collectively.
Organised by London Feminist Network Anti-Pornography Group
