Feminism and Pornography

WAS £29.99 £14.99

Product description

Feminism and Pornography seeks to expand the parameters of the debate on pornography. This collection of essays offers an understanding of what pornography means to those who consume it, fight against it, work within it, and to those engaged in changing its meaning. It presents divergent points of view to address the complexity of sexual material and, by discussing the relationship between imperialism, the exotic, and the pornographic, the collection moves away from Eurocentric perspectives on pornography.
This unique volume explores a wide range of issues: how the meaning of pornography is shaped by changing historical and political realities; the role law should play, if any, in the sex industry; whether union organising can change the working conditions in the sex industry; kinds of representational politics available for redefining pornography; and how sexually explicit literature, videos, art, and music can serve the purpose of sexual freedom.
