Contributor(s): Cornell, Drucilla [Editor]Material type: BookBookSeries: Oxford readings in feminismPublication details: New York Oxford University Press 2000Description: xvi, 671p. Includes bibliographical references and indexISBN: 9780198782506Subject(s): Pornography | Feminist theory | Sex-oriented businesses - Social aspectsDDC classification: 363.47 Summary: This vibrant collection expands the parameters of the feminist debate on pornography. In an effort to move away from the divisive frameworks in feminist disputes over pornography, this volume seeks to understand what pornography means to those who consume it, fight against it, and work within it. By opening up a space for divergent points of view to address the complexity of sexual material, this book seeks to forge solidarity among academics, activists, and sex workers from diverse social and political contexts. Feminism and Pornography explores a wide range of contentious issues, including 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 organizing can change the working conditions in the sex industry; and how sexually explicit literature, videos, art, and music can promote sexual freedom. Contributors include such influential writers as Alice Walker, Audre Lorde, bell hooks, Catherine MacKinnon, and Andrea Dworkin. https://global.oup.com/academic/product/feminism-and-pornography-9780198782506?cc=us&lang=en&#
