Pornography and Genocide: The War against Women
Buy on Amazon
One out of every thirty five women born is killed for cultural or sexual reasons. In the twentieth century more women were killed for those reasons than all the people who died in wars. Women everywhere live in the higher stages of Gregory Stanton's eight stage genocide scale. Pornography contributes to the peril, whether in the form of battlefield rape films, the rape chants of frat boys, or the massive distribution of violent images on the web and through other media. The United Nations definition of genocide must be changed to recognize women as a targeted group. Pornography and Genocide pulls together the evidence from legal scholars and a myriad of contemporary studies and news accounts from around the world. It is time to face the war against women.
"Pornography and Genocide is difficult but indispensable reading. Trzyna provides evidence from around the world that pornography promotes genocide and is, itself, violence against women. The statistics are appalling and the facts they represent emerge from accepted, often legislated perspectives on women as inferior, usable objects. His carefully documented arguments demonstrate that pornography is a systematic war on females, leading to death of body or soul."
