Defending Pornography: Free Speech, Sex, and the Fight for Womens Rights by Nadine Strossen

Strossen, president of the American Civil Liberties Union, devotes most of the book to arguing that antiporn feminists such as Catharine MacKinnon and Andrea Dworkin are puritanical and antisexual, noting that their pursuit of censorship has ironically allied them with conservatives. Womens rights are more endangered by censorship than by sexual words or images, she asserts, and censorship would not reduce sexism or violence. However, she blithely glosses over crucially connected economic and social issues and, moreover, some may find themselves unconvinced by her portrait of pornography as liberating for those involved in it. (Why are only well-educated, financially thriving sex industry workers interviewed?) Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
