Neo-Liberalism and the Defanging of Feminism

October 5, 2012

Gail Dines is a feminist, activist and the author of numerous books, most recently PornLand: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality.

In this lecture entitled Neo-Liberalism and the Defanging of Feminism, Dines provides an important and sharp critique of the state of feminism, a critique of capitalism through a feminist lens and a look at the pornography industry as one manifestation of the wedding between capitalism and patriarchy.

Dines is also one of the founders of the group, Stop Porn Culture, which provides resources and training material for people who want to both understand the pornography industry and confront it.
