Watch trailer below for Gloria: In Her Own Words

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Gloria Steinem is a journalist, activist, organizer, lecturer, author of numerous books, and one of the preeminent feminists of the 20th century. She has been speaking out against sexism since the 1960s and against pornography and other forms of sexual exploitation and abuse since the 1970s.

In the same way that AntiPornography.org is anti-censorship and differentiates between pornography and erotica, and is fighting only against pornography, the same is true for Gloria. She addresses the differences between erotica and pornography in her excellent, must-read chapter, "Erotica Vs. Pornography," in her important,  best-selling and inspirational book, Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions.

Gloria co-founded Ms. Magazine and was also a founding member of Women Against Pornography in 1978. She continues to speak out against pornography, sex trafficking, and related issues in the present and is currently the Chair for the the New York Anti-Trafficking Coalition.

Gloria also co-founded the The Women's Media Center in 2005 along with Jane Fonda and Robin Morgan. Gloria is currently working on a book entitled "Road to the Heart: America As If Everyone Mattered," about her 40 years on the road as a feminist activist and organizer.

"(Pornography) has nothing to do with sex, with love, with erotica. It is violence.  And in most of the cases of rapists and child abusers who have been questioned, they have said very clearly that they were practicing what they had seen demonstrated in pornography."

""The People vs. Larry Flynt" claims that the creator of Hustler magazine is a champion of the First Amendment, deserving our respect. That isn't true. Let's be clear: a pornographer is not a hero, no more than a publisher of Ku Klux Klan books or a Nazi on the Internet."

Description from the Charlie Rose show: "Gloria Steinem and pornographer Larry Flynt's daughter, Tonya Flynt Vega, voice their opposition to the film, "The People vs. Larry Flynt". Gloria Steinem discusses how the film wrongly portrays the publisher of "Hustler" magazine Flynt as a first amendment crusader rather than as an oppressor of women, and Tonya Flynt Vega clarifies that many of the portrayals in the film are historically inaccurate."

"Trafficking in people is bigger than it's ever been. Slavery is bigger now than it was in the 1800s, and more profitable. The estimated profits from it are bigger than that from the illegal arms trade. Because of globalization, the Internet, the increased inequity between nations, and between rich and poor, ease of travel -- all of those things have made slavery much easier, more profitable, and much more prevalent."

AUDIO INTERVIEW: Gloria Steinem interviewed on human trafficking, sex trafficking and sex slavery by Tom Ashbrook of OnPointRadio.org.

Thursday, December 7, 2006 at 11:00 AM EDT

 
 

"Political activist and women’s movement icon Gloria Steinem came out swinging decades ago as an irresistible voice for feminism and freedom as a new generation defined it.

She was a beauty and a battler. Founded Ms. Magazine when that was an earthquake in publishing. Stood up again and again for women’s rights, women’s equality, women’s freedom.

Gloria Steinem still does all that, but at 72, she’s widened her focus, too. Her latest cause: 21st century slavery and human trafficking. There’s a lot of it. A shocking, half-hidden world of debt-bondage and sex slavery and outright servitude. And Steinem is on it."

-- Tom Ashbrook

This Hour, On Point: Gloria Steinem on freedom and slavery in the 21st century.

Guests: Gloria Steinem, writer, lecturer, editor, and feminist activist. Co-founder of Ms. Magazine, and author of Revolution from Within: A Book of Self-Esteem, Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions, and Marilyn: Norma Jean. She has written the foreward to a new book: Enslaved: True Stories of Modern Day Slavery,

VIDEO: Gloria Steinem at Chicago Foundation for Women: 4 of 4

From 3:27 on in the below video Gloria discusses how prostitution and sex trafficking harms exist in a culture in direct proportion to whatever degree toxic and violent masculinity exists.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


"Pornography is a marketing device for sex trafficking: It normalizes degradation and violence as acceptable and even inevitable parts of sex, and uses the bodies of real women and children as objects. The difference between pornography and erotica is clear in the roots of the words themselves -- porne means females slaves, eros means love -- so pornography, like rape, is about violence and domination, not sex. Millions of lives depend on our ability to separate pornography from erotica, and to disentangle violence from sexuality."


Gloria Steinem, 2006

Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality  

- by Gail Dines

 

Click picture above to order "PORNLAND" at Amazon.com now!
 
DESCRIPTION
 
Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality takes an unflinching look at today’s porn industry: the stories woven into the images, the impact on our culture, the effects on us as men and women, the business machine that creates and markets porn, and the growing legitimacy of porn in mainstream media. Above all, PORNLAND examines the way porn shapes and limits sexual imaginations and behaviors.
 
Although we are surrounded by pornographic images, many people are not aware of just how cruel and violent the industry is today. PORNLAND shows how today’s porn is strikingly different from yesterday’s Playboy and Penthouse magazines — how competition in the industry and consumer desensitization have pushed porn toward hard core extremes. And, with the advent of the internet and other digital technologies, users don’t have to wander far to access porn; todaythe average age of first viewing is about 11 for boys, and studies reveal that young men, who consume more porn than ever before, have difficulty forming healthy relationships.
 
PORNLAND also looks at how our porn culture affects the way women and girls think about their bodies, their sexuality and their relationships. PORNLAND: How Porn has Hijacked our Sexuality argues that rather than sexually liberating or empowering us, porn offers us a plasticized, formulaic, generic version of sex that is boring, lacking in creativity and disconnected from emotion and intimacy.

Shared Hope International specifically focuses on fighting the demand for commercial sexual exploitaiton, including addressing pornography as a very significant demand factor for sex trafficking. 

Please see their excellent report on this issue:

Pornography: Creating Demand for International Sex Trafficking

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


"Pornography is a marketing device for sex trafficking: It normalizes degradation and violence as acceptable and even inevitable parts of sex, and uses the bodies of real women and children as objects. The difference between pornography and erotica is clear in the roots of the words themselves -- porne means females slaves, eros means love -- so pornography, like rape, is about violence and domination, not sex. Millions of lives depend on our ability to separate pornography from erotica, and to disentangle violence from sexuality."

Gloria Steinem, 2006

For information about Gloria Steinem's important work of fighting against the harms of pornography, sex trafficking and other forms of sexual exploitation and abuse, including videos and an audio interview, please see our page on Gloria Steinem. Click here.

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED. PLEASE DONATE IF YOU ARE ABLE TO.

Please remember that it is not up to AntiPornography.org, the other organizations listed on this page, the government, or "someone else" to do the entire job of fighting against the devastating harms of pornography, prostitution, trafficking, and other forms of sexual exploitation or abuse. It is an enormous job and the responsibility lies with each and every one of us to do our part as part of the bigger team of those who are choosing to be part of the solution of creating a more just and humane world for everyone, rather than be part of the problem.

So thank you in advance for whatever you are able to contribute to the cause, whether in the form of a tax-deductible donation or your actions. What you do does matter, so for the sake of all those across the world who are being exploited and abused, and for the sake of the future of humanity, please do what you can to create a more compassionate and safer society for all.

Thank you for whatever you are able to give or do to help create a better world for everyone, especially for women, children and future generations.

 YOUR SUPPORTIVE ACTIONS & YOUR DONATIONS ARE VERY MUCH APPRECIATED. 

THEY CAN AND WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
