Dangerous Relationships
Pornography, Misogyny and Rape


Other Titles in:
Rape & Sex Crimes

June 1998 | 224 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
In this uncompromising volume, Diana E Russell examines the relationships between pornography, misogyny and rape, and contends that these relationships are indeed dangerous to women.

After defining pornography and considering the various types of pornographic material available, the author demonstrates that hatred of women is a predominant aspect of pornography, and that racist undercurrents are often exploited in visual pornography of all types. She then provides a rich body of statistical evidence that supports the argument that pornography is a cause of rape.
