Central Phoenix Inez Casiano Chapter of NOW presents an education workshop, Porn and Violence Against Women and Children: Unpacking the Links.
In light of the contemporary research on the harms of porn, it is crucial that we understand the multiple negative effects of pornography, and also develop strategies to counter the harmful and misogynist messages, ideologies and tropes that are encoded in the images. Towards this end, this workshop will provide:
(1) Content analysis and deconstruction of mainstream pornography and hypersexualized images.
(2) A detailed account of the peer-reviewed literature on the harms of pornography.
(3) A nuanced analysis of how a public health approach can be harnessed to undermine the power of the porn industry.
