Event: Stop Porn Culture Training: London 13.06.09

OBJECT – in conjunction with London Feminist Network, Anti-Porn London
and Scary Little Girls – is delighted to offer a fantastic Stop Porn Culture training session led by US Feminist researcher and activist Rebecca Whisnant. Rebecca was one of the founder members of the U.S. National Feminist Anti-Pornography Movement and has co-edited Global Feminist Ethics, 2007 and Not for Sale: Feminists Resisting Prostitution and Pornography, 2004.
