The mainstream has become increasingly outspoken about the increasingly violent and ubiquitous 97 billion dollar Pornography industry which makes more than the top tech companies combined with 3 billion made annually on child porn. Time Magazine’s recent cover story “Porn and the Threat to Virility” examines how men who watched porn as children and teenagers have started a movement against porn. But ironically within the feminist community there are some feminists who defend pornography and attack the voices of radical anti porn activists. Today, we will hear a talk by anti-porn activist and scholar Gail Dines, professor of Sociology and Women’s Studies at Wheelock College, and author of “Pornland: How Porn has Hijacked our Sexuality.” In a talk titled “From the Personal Is Political to the Personal is Personal: Neo-Liberalism and the Defanging of Feminism.” Gail Dines, explores how mainstream feminism has lost its way by fighting for the individual rights of a small group of elite white women instead of the collective liberation of all women. Dines argues that some third wave feminism offers a pseudo-empowerment to women who conform to the narrow standards of femininity set by porn culture. She calls for a feminism that is unapologetically fierce in its commitment to radical social change.
