An excellent feminist and left-wing critique of prostitution and pornography. The contributions from feminist activists and survivors accurately and decisively uncover the brutality, racism and misogyny inherent to the sexualised objectification and torture of women in prostitution and pornography. This book is essential reading for anyone who believes these capitalist industries are empowering for women and girls.

I want you to think about those who have been hurt for the fun, the entertainment, the so-called speech of others; those who have been hurt for profit, for the financial benefit of pimps & entrepreneurs. I want you to remember the perpetrator & to remember the victims: not just tonight but tomorrow & the next day. I want you to find a way to include them in what you do, how you think, how you act, what you care about, what your life means to you.

Women and Girls Not For Sale! Anti-capitalist comrades, fellow feminists, liberation seekers, Resist! Consent is not for sale. Sex is not a commodity. Women‘s bodies are not objects, nor is the purpose of a woman to service the sexualised cravings of men. Commercialisation is always an exploitation. Why let the capitalists take advantage of the most vulnerable, most intimate, that which should be most autonomous?

The Revolution Starts at Home: Confronting Intimate Violence Within Activist Communities | Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, Ching-In Chen, Jai Dulani

necessary and difficult read. I learned a lot about the work survivors have already done, especially in disabled and immigrant communities. I also loved the emphasis on our shared responsibility for survivors‘ healing. Tbh, I was disheartened by the accountability methods - they just didn‘t seem like they worked, even though I think it‘s a huge feat to have strong enough community to be able to even try.

I must have bought this book third hand 12 years ago. It shows some wear! Unique among all the books I‘ve read this anthology brings together pieces by feminist activists including Alice Walker, Audre Lorde, Adrienne Rich, Robin Morgen, Gloria Steinem, and Luisah Teish, all analysing the extensive harms of pornography from a women‘s liberation perspective. Published in 1980, it‘s deeply saddening to see how much worse pornography has become since.

I‘ve just been told my partner in crime, my other half, my best best friend from high school, Jacquie, has been diagnosed with asbestosis(a horrible lung cancer) and has only a few weeks left. We lost touch after she moved to Queensland with her children, but not a day goes by that I don‘t think about her. The things we got up to as teenagers! This will be my only post tonight, I hope all you wonderful littens put her in your thoughts & prayers💔

DO NOT READ THIS BOOK! Not only@is it riddled wit grammatical errors and plot holes, but it is completely impossible to read! Too many characters to remember, too much skipping between the past and present, and half the time you don‘t know who‘s narrating! Awful book

This is a must read for every woman. Not that we will expect something like that (hopefully never) but to understand. To never judge a woman that has been a victim of violence. #feminism #violenceagainstwomen #womensprize #bookly

CaroPi @TheAnitaAlvarez it should! I also hope it wins the #womensprize this year 1y
TheAnitaAlvarez @CaroPi I‘m trying to get through the shortlist before the prize is announced! 🙈 1y
