Why have feminist activists and writers confronted pornography and what obstacles or resistance have they faced?
Man in his lust has regulated long enough this whole question of sexual intercourse. Now let the mother of mankind, whose prerogative it is to set bounds to his indulgence, rouse up and give this whole matter a thorough, fearless, examination. (Stanton, E, 1853, p21)
Pornography is a complex social issue, one that many feminists disagree over. In the following essay I shall discuss the following reasons why feminists writers and activists have confronted pornography; the link between pornography and violence within society, the objectification of the woman in pornographic material, the effects pornographic material has on everyday women, child pornography, racism within the pornography industry, and the exploitation of lesbianism within the industry. I will then discuss the obstacles and resistance that feminist activists and writers have faced in challenging the pornography industry, these include the power and arguments put forth by the pornography industry and the arguments put forth by the Civil Libertarians.
