Pornography is a form of sexual discrimination, violating the civil rights of women while encouraging sexual aggression, battering, sexual abuse, harassment and prostitution.

   Many women and children are forced to work in pornography.

   Repeated use of pornography affects men’s behavior.

   Men involved in pornography are more likely to become involved in human trafficking.
