Violence against Women in Pornography illuminates the ways in which adult pornography hurts many women, both on and off screen. A growing body of social scientific knowledge shows that it is strongly associated with various types of violence against women in intimate relationships. Many women who try to leave abusive and/or patriarchal men also report that pornography plays a role in the abuse inflicted on them by their ex-partners. On top of these harms, male pornography consumption is strongly correlated with attitudes supporting violence against women. Many researchers, practitioners, and policy makers believe that adult pornography is a major problem and offer substantial evidence supporting this claim. Violence against Women in Pornography, unlike books written mainly for scholarly and general audiences, specifically targets students enrolled in undergraduate criminology, deviance, women’s studies, masculinities studies, human sexuality, and media studies courses. Thoughtful discussion questions are placed at the end of each chapter, and appropriate PowerPoint slides and suggestions for classroom exercises will be available to aid student understanding. The main objective of this book is to motivate readers to think critically about adult pornography and to take progressive steps individually and collectively to curb the production and consumption of hurtful sexual media, including that from the "dark side of the Internet."

This is the first anthology to take a theoretical look at violence against women. Each essay shows how philosophy provides a powerful tool for examining a difficult and deep-rooted social problem. Stanley G. French, Wanda Teays, and Laura M. Purdy, all philosophers, present a familiar phenomenon in a new and striking fashion.The editors employ a two-tiered approach to this vital issue. Contributors consider both interpersonal violence, such as rape and battering; and also systemic violence, such as sexual harassment, pornography, prostitution, and violence in a medical context. The editors have further broadened the discussion to include such cross-cultural issues as rape in war, dowry deaths, female genital mutilation, and international policies on violence against women. Against this wide range of topics, which integrate personal perspectives with the philosophical, the contributors offer powerful analyses of the causes and effects of violence against women, as well as potential policies for effecting change.

Violence against women permeates our society at every level, in every setting. Murder, rape, intimidation, pornography, workplace harassment, incest are all part of a general belief built into the roots of patriarchal society: Women are proper targets of male violence. The chapters in this book, contributed by some of the most prolific contemporary writers on women's issues, explore this culture of violence and oppression, examining its ideological underpinnings and its structural supports in the social, political and legal systems that protect the violent by blaming the victim.

Medien bestimmen unseren Alltag heute in einem Maße, das selbst die euphorischsten Prognosen bei der Einführung verschiedener Leitmedien, wie etwa Buchdruck, Telefon oder Fernsehen, weit übersteigt. Nicht zuletzt der Personal Computer und die weltweite Vernetzung über das Internet haben die Mediatisierung unserer Welt noch einmal deutlich beschleunigt. Medienpsychologie beschäftigt sich mit menschlichem Erleben und Verhalten im Umgang mit Medien. Das Lehrbuch bietet eine aktuelle und verständliche Einführung in die verschiedenen Bereiche der Medienpsychologie. Neben den Grundlagen einer Medienpsychologie werden einschlägige Forschungsmethoden vorgestellt. Die spezifischen Anwendungsfelder schließen sowohl Einsatzgebiete der »klassischen« Medien als auch der neuen Medien ein.Im Lehrbuch werden zunächst die Grundlagen einer empirischen Medienpsychologie dargestellt, z.B. die Schlüsselkonzepte der Mediennutzung und Medienwirkung sowie der Medienkompetenz, aber auch kognitions-, emotions-, entwicklungs-, persönlichkeits- und sozialpsychologische Theorien. Weiterhin wird über die für dieses Fachgebiet spezifisch relevanten Forschungsmethoden informiert. Die Breite und Vielschichtigkeit der Forschungsfelder der modernen Medienpsychologie wird im dritten Teil des Lehrbuches deutlich. Hier vermitteln Beiträge aus dem Bereich der »klassischen« Medien als auch der neueren computerbasierten und interaktiven Medien einen umfassenden Eindruck vom breiten Spektrum der Aufgabenfelder. Themen sind z.B. Lesen, Fernsehnutzung und -wirkung, Infotainment und Edutainment, Unterhaltung, Werbung, computervermittelte Kommunikation, E-Learning und netzbasierte Wissenskommunikation, Computer- und Videospiele sowie die sozio-emotionale Dimension des Internet.

In this uncompromising volume, Diana E Russell examines the relationships between pornography, misogyny and rape, and contends that these relationships are indeed dangerous to women. After defining pornography and considering the various types of pornographic material available, the author demonstrates that hatred of women is a predominant aspect of pornography, and that racist undercurrents are often exploited in visual pornography of all types. She then provides a rich body of statistical evidence that supports the argument that pornography is a cause of rape.
