The Symposia in Race, Gender and Philosophy has a new symposium on Anne Eaton’s “A Sensible Anti-Porn Feminism” with commentary by Patrick D. Hopkins, Rae Langton, Ishani Maitra, Laurie Shrage. Check it out here (Spring no. 2).
Jender at Feminist Philosophers comments:
Eaton’s paper is an exceptionally careful exploration of what a sensible anti-porn feminism should look like: how such a view should define ‘pornography’, what conception of causation it should use, what sorts of causal claims it should make/explore, what sorts of rigorous testing would be needed to actually establish these claims, and what sorts of remedies it should advocate (not necessarily legal ones). It’s well worth reading even for feminists who are not anti-pornography, partly because it provides a new and interesting foil, but mostly because it raises so many fascinating and important methodological points.
