Heinz Forum in collaboration with the Heinz Graduate Women’s Association
presents:

PORN:
The Latex Elephant in the Room
California lawmakers are making headlines with the new landmark condom law
for pornography films. Where is pornography headed from here? Should there
be stricter laws about its production? Does this industry produce any
benefits? What does pornography do to society’s perception of women, sex,
and relationships? Goodforher.com gives awards for “feminist” porn. Does
feminist porn exist? Some consider pornography films a form of art and
some consider them a detriment to society. Where is the line? 

Join us in this discussion of pornography and feminism, and how and where
this industry fits into our society.
