I agree with these petitioners that CSE which seeks to introduce and inculcate LGBTQ issues and rights to our infants in schools in Ghana is abhorrent to our Ghanaian culture and values.

"We were sold a lie on an almighty scale, that equality had been won, the battle was over.“
- Kat Banyard, British feminist

„Pornography is the instruction, rape the practice.“
-Anita Kanitz

„Woman is not born: she is made. In the making, her humanity is destroyed. She becomes symbol of this, symbol of that: mother of the earth, slut of the universe; but she never becomes herself because it is forbidden for her to do so.
Feminists are often asked whether pornography causes rape. The fact is that rape and prostitution caused and continue to cause pornography. Politically, culturally, socially, sexually, and economically, rape and prostitution generated pornography; and pornography depends for its continued existence on the rape and prostitution of women.
Pornography is used in rape - to plan it, to execute it, to choreograph it, to engender the excitement to commit the act. [Andrea testimony before the New York Attorney General's Commission on Pornography in 1986]
Women, for centuries not having access to pornography and now unable to bear looking at the muck on the supermarket shelves, are astonished. Women do not believe that men believe that pornography says about women. But they do. From the worst to the best of them, they do.
Sexism is the foundation on which all tyranny is built. Every social form of hierarchy and abuse is modeled on male-over-female domination.
Men who want to support women in our struggle for freedom and justice should understand that it is not terrifically important to us that they learn to cry; it is important to us that they stop the crimes of violence against us.
The fact that we are all trained to be mothers from infancy on means that we are all trained to devote our lives to men, whether they are our sons or not; that we are all trained to force other women to exemplify the lack of qualities which characterizes the cultural construct of femininity.
Intercourse as an act often expresses the power men have over women.“
-Andrea Dworkin

by Andrea Dworkin


Men of the Right and men of the Left have an undying allegiance to prostitution as such, regardless of their theoretical relationship to marriage. The Left sees the prostitute as the free, public woman of sex, exciting because she flaunts it, because of her brazen availability. The Right sees in the prostitute the power of the bad woman of sex, the male's use of her being his dirty little secret. The old pornography industry was a right-wing industry: secret money, secret sin, secret sex, secret promiscuity, secret buying and selling of women, secret profit, secret pleasure not only from sex but also from the buying and selling. The new pornography industry is a left-wing industry: promoted especially by the boys of the sixties as simple pleasure, lusty fun, public sex, the whore brought out of the bourgeois (sic) home into the streets for the democratic consumption of all men; her freedom, her free sexuality, is as his whore--and she likes it. It is her political will as well as her sexual will; it is liberation. The dirty little secret of the left-wing pornography industry is not sex but commerce.

The new pornography industry is held, by leftist males, to be inherently radical. Sex is claimed by the Left as a leftist phenomenon; the trade in women is most of sex. The politics of liberation are claimed as indigenous to the Left by the Left; central to the politics of liberation is the mass-marketing of material that depicts women being used as whores. The pimps of pornography are hailed by leftists as saviors and savants. Larry Flynt has been proclaimed a savior of the counterculture, a working-class hero, and even, in a full-page advertisement in The New York Times signed by distinguished leftist literati, an "American Dissident" persecuted as Soviet dissidents are. Hugh Hefner is viewed as a pioneer of sexual freedom who showed, in the words of columnist Max Lerner, "how the legislating of sexuality could be fought, how the absurd anti-play and anti-pleasure ethic could be turned into a stylish hedonism and a lifeway which includes play and playfulness along with work. 15 Lerner also credits Hefner with being a precursor of the women's movement.

On the Left, the sexually liberated woman is the woman of pornography. Free male sexuality wants, has a right to, produces, and consumes pornography because pornography is pleasure. Leftist sensibility promotes and protects pornography because pornography is freedom. The pornography glut is bread and roses for the masses. Freedom is the mass-marketing of woman as whore. Free sexuality for the woman is in being massively consumed, denied an individual nature, denied any sexual sensibility other than that which serves the male. Capitalism is not wicked or cruel when the commodity is the whore; profit is not wicked or cruel when the alienated worker is a female piece of meat; corporate bloodsucking is not wicked or cruel when the corporations in question, organized crime syndicates, sell cunt; racism is not wicked or cruel when the black cunt or yellow cunt or red cunt or Hispanic cunt or Jewish cunt has her legs splayed for any man's pleasure; poverty is not wicked or cruel when it is the poverty of dispossessed women who have only themselves to sell; violence by the powerful against the powerless is not wicked or cruel when it is called sex; slavery is not wicked or cruel when it is sexual slavery; torture is not wicked or cruel when the tormented are women, whores, cunts. The new pornography is left-wing; and the new pornography is a vast graveyard where the Left has gone to die. The Left cannot have its whores and its politics too.

Unfortunately, the porn industry contributes to the brutalization of men with sadistic torture porn, rape porn on. And not enough with this women hating unprotected sex is always shown, the porn industry still contributes to the spread of sexually transmitted diseases and AIDS. Infections of porn starst are always covered up, but there are cases where a male porn actor has infected hundreds of colleagues with AIDS. In addition, 90% of all porn is sadistic, misogynistic, the porn actresses are all very young, disgusting practices such as mass rape, BDSM, simultaneous multiple penetration of vagina, anus and mouth, which may be associated with serious injuries, are portrayed as normal. Vomiting, pleading, begging and crying of porn actresses are portrayed as normal. This is pure women hatred and should be banned worldwide! Many men want sex not in this kind, even not women! Because if men are wanted oral sex and anal sex all the time they should even times swallow their own sperm and getting tooth damage and injuries in the neck area and can make anal sex with huge dildos and vibrators and then they know what avoid injury, and bleeding of the intestines until incontinence means. Every normal man will then take considerate of a woman and those which want cruel and dangerous practices belong to jail! This misogynist pornography must be banned worldwide anywhere!!!!!
Pornographers are women's haters and women's despisers at it's finest. Pornography means war against women, girls, children and it also means the mental and physical destruction of female people and childs. Pornography has nothing to do with sex, eroticism and love, but with femicide, rape, torture, humiliation, annihilation.
As a teenager, I was damned unhappy that suddenly there were sex films, porno films, porn posters, sex posters everywhere. Verbal and physical sexual assaults by men and boys towards female children, teenagers, young women and even older women have become part of everyday life ever since this time. I did not like anything of the sexual liberation, because now women and girls should find bad and violent sex suddenly good. In the cinemas ran perverse films like Clockwork Orange or the last Tango of Paris. We women and girls hated all that, but if we said something critical, we were abnormal and frigid and male haters, not real women and crazy.
Not a single woman or girl was sexually enthusiastic at the time, dating rape and rape in partnership and marriage were the norm. Even I have several jobs terminated because of sexual harassment and a rape attempt. And I was not alone with this problem, all women and girls I know had the same problem. The police did not pick up ads at all, they often found it funny to laugh about what the women and girls reported, and even made sexist remarks, who wants to rape something like you, or are you one of the modern crazy feminists?
The first sex was for everyone female person I know and that is still today, associated with great pain and blood, mostly this sex was unwanted.
Today, as I know from two very young female acquaintances, it is almost impossible to find men as partners, spouses certainly not at all,to find partners who do not want BDSM sex, almost excluded. Many men, no matter their age, are brothel visitors and looking for sex contacts over the Internet. They are not interested in women and girls at all, in disputes it is the rule to call women and girls as cunts, sluts, whores and fuckbodies.
As I was very young, men and boys became verbally and physically violent towards women and girls who either did not want sex or who did not like sex or find the sex worse or did not fake an orgasm. From, let's sew your ugly hole up to let you cut off everything, you do not need it anyway, was insulting everything for all females. Very often I also heard from female acquaintances and girlfriends that their friends and partners abruptly removed the condoms during intercourse and unloaded their fish smelting sperm unrestrained into their vaginas. As a result, the women and girls then had to undergo pregnancy tests and HIV tests. Sometimes they also get sexual and dangerous infections. That kind of the worst and inhuman violence makes me sick. Also, it often happened that vaginal intercourse suddenly became unquestioned anal intercourse, resulting in anal injuries, bleedings and severe pain. The screams of pain did not interest the men and boys in all these cases, they still called the women and girls as impossible and cold. Violent and bad sex is rape, a fact that men and boys do not want to acknowledge and never will do everworldwide. That's a heinous scandal!And that has not changed until now, things are getting more and more worse.
A young female acquaintance told me that her friend slammed her against the wall when she did not want to have BDSM sex. Then she fled the apartment and he sold her private things. Even her father, who wanted to pick up her things, was threatened and the Ex-friend told him that he could keep the stupid bitch, his daughter. Her ex-boyfriend immediately found a new sex contact over the Internet and then posted on Facebook with her als newsexy friend. So much for the great love he had lied to my acquaintance.
Another female friend was friends with a theology student who liked violent sex. He also slept in front of everyone at a party with another girl. When my girlfriend left him because of this, she had to leave the apartment without her clothes and personal things because of verbal and physical attacks. After months she got these, but not as thought. At night, after attending a pop concert with me and another female friend, this lunatic already lurked in her apartment with his friends, had cleared her fridge and emptied all drinks, put her bag full of insects and maggots in the bedroom and threatened her still with a gangbang. If other homeowners did not call the police, that would have been damned bad for my female friend. In my youth was it a sad fact, that going to the movies often meant that the guys drove with the girls in sex cinemas or movie theaters with sex movies or porno films and then raped them in woods. When they became pregnant, they were beaten by them. But even later, a girlfriend, only 16 years old, happened an oral gangbang with 20 men instead of a date with a man in love. This gangbang was filmed and she was blackmailed with it.
A old woman I met in a clinic told me that her son-in-law had so strangled her daughter in enforced BDSM sex that she has been permanently in coma ever since. He was actually acquitted, a scandal in my view.
So much for the great sex life we ​​women and girls get commanded by men. It's a shame that violence and humiliation are now so glorified by the porn industry. This should be stopped as soon as possible, because a sexual femicide, which has never existed in human history in this form, is emerging worldwide.

books about that:

Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality by Gail Dines (Autor);
Astonishingly, the average age of first viewing porn is now 11.5 years for boys, and with the advent of the Internet, it’s no surprise that young people are consuming more porn than ever. And, as Gail Dines shows, today’s porn is strikingly different from yesterday’s Playboy. As porn culture has become absorbed into pop culture, a new wave of entrepreneurs are creating porn that is even more hard-core, violent, sexist, and racist. Proving that porn desensitizes and actually limits our sexual freedom, Dines argues its omnipresence is a public health concern we can no longer ignore.

Battling Pornography: The American Feminist Anti-Pornography Movement, 1976–1986 by Carolyn Bronstein (Autor):
Pornography catapulted to the forefront of the American women's movement in the 1980s. In Battling Pornography, Carolyn Bronstein locates the origins of anti-pornography sentiment in the turbulent social and cultural history of the late 1960s and 1970s. Based on extensive original archival research, the book reveals that the seeds of the movement were planted by groups who protested the proliferation of advertisements, Hollywood films and other mainstream media that glorified sexual violence. Over time, feminist leaders redirected the emphasis from violence to pornography to leverage rhetorical power. Battling Pornography presents a fascinating account of the rise and fall of this significant American social movement and documents the contributions of influential activists on both sides of the pornography debate, including some of the best-known American feminists.

Sexual Enslavement of Girls and Women Worldwide by Andrea Parrot (Autor):
They are in different countries but share the same hell. Maria is one of 14 women lured from Mexico to Seattle, Washington, with the promise of a job, then held by force in a brothel and required to sexually service men 12 hours a day. Anna is a young mother from the Ukraine who left her husband and children there to take a job as a housecleaner in Italy, where she was put in a barred, guarded house and forced into prostitution. Nadia is an 11-year-old girl in Africa, kidnapped and forced to have sex with a militiaman daily, with a machete ever ready nearby should she refuse. All three women are part of horrific sex slavery that has drawn the attention of officials in countries around the globe. It is not rare; officials say it is increasing, at least partly due to the billions of dollars it brings in for organized crime. The U.S. State Department estimates 800,000 victims, mostly women and children, are trafficked for sex trade across nations each year and millions more are trafficked within countries - including the U.S., Britain, Spain, and the Netherlands. As a Seattle Times reporter explained when Maria's case hit the news there, the reality is that sex slaves for the most part are young women and teenaged girls who come from almost every one of the world's poorer countries and end up in almost every country where there is a combination of sexual demand and money. But they are also in undeveloped Africa, in prisons internationally, locked in forced marriages, or sold to men by parents.

In this book, Parrot and Cummings outline the scope and growth of the sex slave market today and explain the history with various elements - including economic, political, cultural, and religious - that make this trade difficult to fully expose, quell, combat, and shut down. We hear from girls and women around the world describing how sexual enslavement has tortured them physically, emotionally, and spiritually, whether they suffer at the hands of prison guards in Turkey, criminals in Washington, or buyers dealing with parents who sell their daughters for the sex slave trade in Greece, Belgium, or France. The authors also describe national and international efforts and legislation passed or in design to stop sex slavery. Successful countries and regions are spotlighted. Then Parrot and Cummings point out actions still needed to stop the sex slavery trade.

Lloyd’s unflinchingly honest memoir is a powerful and unforgettable story of inhuman abuse, enduring hope, and the promise of redemption.

Pornography: Men Possessing Women by Andrea Dworkin (Autor):
Andrea Dworking is one of those special people,who occupies that category of 'prophet of our times', presenting aspects of life in which, as human beings, we must look at, examine and do much personal reflection if we, as men and women, are interested growth and becoming aware, compassionate human beings in relation to each other.

After Pornified: How Women Are Transforming Pornography & Why It Really Matters by Anne G. Sabo (Autor):
Porn brings up a lot of negative images in our sexualized, pornified culture. But today a growing number of women are radically changing porn to respectfully capture the authentic sexual lives of women and men, empowering and inspiring the viewer to claim her sexuality against a sexualized culture, and creating a real counterweight to pornified media and porn as it’s been known. In these women’s hands porn has become a vehicle for women to explore and define sexuality on their terms, shining the light on how we can all break free from traditional gender roles and shatter erotic conventions.

Tracing the movement from its inception, After Pornfied visualizes this transformed porn to the reader in a way that no other book on porn has done, so that she too can see the power and potential of this new porn by women to free our minds and bodies from the demeaning imageries of our sex in all other porn and pornified media.

Porn affects us. Today, women are leading the way to make those effects empowering.

Pornography and Genocide: The War against Women by Thomas Trzyna (Autor) :
One out of every thirty five women born is killed for cultural or sexual reasons. In the twentieth century more women were killed for those reasons than all the people who died in wars. Women everywhere live in the higher stages of Gregory Stanton’s eight stage genocide scale. Pornography contributes to the peril, whether in the form of battlefield rape films, the rape chants of frat boys, or the massive distribution of violent images on the web and through other media. The United Nations definition of genocide must be changed to recognize women as a targeted group. Pornography and Genocide pulls together the evidence from legal scholars and a myriad of contemporary studies and news accounts from around the world. It is time to face the war against women.

Child Pornography: An Internet Crime by Ethel Quayle (Autor) :
Child pornography, particularly that available via the Internet, has become a cause of huge social concern in recent years. This book examines the reality behind the often hysterical media coverage of the topic. Drawing on extensive new research findings, it examines how child pornography is used on the Internet and the social context in which such use occurs, and develops a model of offending behaviour to better help understand and deal with the processes of offending. Detailed case studies and offenders' own accounts are used to illustrate the processes involved in offending and treatment.
The authors argue that we need to refine our ideas of offending, and that while severe deterrents need to be associated with possession of child pornography, a better understanding is needed of the links between possession and committing a contact offence. Only by improving our understanding of this complex and very controversial topic can we hope to deal effectively with offenders and with their child victims. This is a book which will become an essential read for anyone involved with offenders or victims from a psychological, judicial or social background.

Not For Sale: Feminists Resisting Prostitution & Pornography: Feminists Resisting Prostitution and Pornography by Christine Stark (Autor), Rebecca Whisnant (Autor) :
Including the latest research on prostitution and pornography, this essay anthology shows how the sex industries harm those within them while undermining the possibilities for gender justice, human equality, and stable sexual relationships. From sex industries survivors to social activists and theorists such as Taylor Lee, Adriene Sere, and Kristen Anderberg, this volume asses from a feminist perspective the racism, poverty, militarism, and corporate capitalism of selling sex through strip clubs, brothels, mail-order brides, and child pornography.

Pornified: How Pornography Is Damaging Our Lives, Our Relationships, and Our Families by Pamela Paul (Autor):
Porn in America is everywhere—not just in cybersex and Playboy but in popular video games, advice columns, and reality television shows, and on the bestseller lists. Even more striking, as porn has become affordable, accessible, and anonymous, it has become increasingly acceptable—and a big part of the personal lives of many men and women.

In this controversial and critically acclaimed book, Pamela Paul argues that as porn becomes more pervasive, it is destroying our marriages and families as well as distorting our children's ideas of sex and sexuality. Based on more than one hundred interviews and a nationally representative poll, Pornified exposes how porn has infiltrated our lives, from the wife agonizing over the late-night hours her husband spends on porn Web sites to the parents stunned to learn their twelve-year-old son has seen a hardcore porn film.

Pornified is an insightful, shocking, and important investigation into the costs and consequences of pornography for our families and our culture.

Violence against Women in Pornography by Walter DeKeseredy (Autor), Marilyn Corsianos (Mitwirkende) :
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."

The Pimping of Prostitution: Abolishing the Sex Work Myth by Julie Bindel (Autor):
This book examines one of the most contested issues facing feminists, human rights activists and governments around the globe – the international sex trade. For decades, the liberal left has been conflicted as to whether pro-prostitution activists or abolitionists hold the correct view, and debates are ongoing as to who holds the key to the solutions facing the women and girls involved.

Paid For: My Journey Through Prostitution by Rachel Moran (Autor):
When you are fifteen years old and destitute, too unskilled to work and too young to claim unemployment benefit, your body is all you have left to sell.' Rachel Moran came from a troubled family background. Taken into State care at fourteen, she became homeless and got involved in prostitution aged fifteen. For the next seven years Rachel worked as a prostitute, isolated, drug-addicted, outside of society. Rachel's experience was one of violence, loneliness, and relentless exploitation and abuse. Her story reveals the emotional cost of selling your body night after night in order to survive-loss of innocence, loss of self-worth and a loss of connection from mainstream society that makes it all the more difficult to escape the prostitution world. At the age of 22 she managed, with remarkable strength, to liberate herself from that life. She went to university, gained a degree and forged a new life, but she always promised that one day she would complete this book. This is Rachel Moran's story, written in her own words and in her own name.

Sex, Lies & Statistics: The truth Julie Bindel doesn't want you to read by Brooke Magnanti (Autor), Belle de Jour (Autor) :
"An enlightening must-read for anyone exposed to the press" THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY "Should be read by anyone claiming an interest in sex and, especially, sex equality" EVENING STANDARD "An important book... exactly the kind of level-headed analysis that could help to dispel some of the hysteria surrounding the sex industry" THE TIMES "As entertaining as it is erudite" THE OBSERVER As Belle de Jour she enthralled and outraged the nation in equal measure. Now her real identity is out in the open, Brooke's background as a scientist and a researcher can come to bear in her fascinating investigation into the truth behind the headlines, scandals and moral outrage that fill the media (and our minds) when it comes to sex. Using her entertaining and informed voice, Brooke strips away the hype and looks at the science behind sex and the panic behind public policy. Unlike so many media column inches, Brooke uses verifiable academic research. This is fact, not fiction; science not supposition. So sit back, open your mind and prepare to be shocked...

Between The Streetlights & Red Lights: Escaping from Human Trafficking, Sexual Slavery and Exploitation by Jack W Gregory (Autor):
This book is equal parts tragedy and triumph. All the contributers survived horrific sexual abuse, assault, rape, and human trafficking. To quote the opening of Law and Order: SVU...these are their stories.

The author spent several months talking to and listen to survivors and then provided them with a platform to speak with their own voice.

For his efforts he keeps being banned from FB by people who are offended by the sexual nature of the topic. So...if nothing else ignites your desire to read this it because it's "banned".

In seriousness...this book is not for the faint of heart. It will make you angry. It will make you sad. And it will also open your eyes to the reality of what sexual abuse and human trafficking looks like. It is worth your time to read.

I Never Called It Rape - Updated Edition: The Ms. Report on Recognizing, Fighting, and Surviving Date and Acquaintance Rape by Robin Warshaw (Autor):
Featuring a new preface by feminist icon Gloria Steinem, and a new foreword by Salamishah Tillet, PhD, Rutgers University Professor of African American Studies and Creative Writing

“Essential. . . . It is nonpolemical, lucid, and speaks eloquently not only to the victims of acquaintance rape but to all those caught in its net.”— Philadelphia Inquirer

With the advent of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, and almost daily new reports about rape, both on and off campuses, Robin Warshaw’s I Never Called It Rape is even more relevant today than when it was first published in 1988. The sad truth is that statistics on date rape have not changed in more than thirty years. That our culture enables rape is not just shown by the numbers: the outbreak of complaints against alleged rapists from Bill Cosby and Harvey Weinstein to Matt Lauer and President Donald Trump has further amplified this horrifying reality.

With more than 80,000 copies sold to date, I Never Called It Rape serves as a guide to understanding rape as a cultural phenomenon—providing women and men with strategies to address our rape endemic. It gives survivors the context and resources to help them heal from their experiences, and pulls the wool from all our eyes regarding the pervasiveness of rape and sexual assault in our society.

The Other Side of Silence: Women Tell About Their Experiences With Date Rape by Christine Carter (Herausgeber) :
About the heinous crime date rape!

Dinah Jacob: A young woman’s nightmare On her first date by Silvanus Oluoch (Autor) :
Dinah Jacob is a story of an ill-timed passion and betrayal involving a young woman whose family had just relocated into a new city. As soon as she picked-up friendships with the local girls and she began frequenting one of the girl’s residence, a young man in the city got interested in her. Unfortunately, no one was prepared for what followed. Before they could even get well acquainted, the young man date-raped her on their first encounter to the dismay of everyone else. It is a heart rending story that began well with the girl’s birth, but did not end well. Because when the heinous act was perpetrated upon her, her brothers took the law into their own hands and slaughtered the whole city. Regrettably in this situation, the consequences were as harsh as was the act itself. Lamentably, this is not an isolated case. There are records showing that rape is a widespread and frequent phenomena even today. Yet the thrust of this story is meant to alert the young people to the fact that rape and other sexual abuses are common and can happen to anyone. Some studies have shown that at least a third of girls and a quarter of boys have been sexually molested or abused in some way. I have written as if I favor the girl child simply because this story is about a girl and also because they are the most vulnerable to sexual manipulations in the name of love. The opinions and facts I have expressed herein are not all original with me; I have picked up some here and there along the way from a number of sources in my walk with God. But they are proven wisdom from a Judeo-Christian perspective based on the biblical principles, which are the best guide for every human life. This little volume does not purport to be a text-book on sex or youth behavior, but it is a provocation to the young people to pursue relevant knowledge on sexology rightfully. Though it is small and does not exhaust all there is to be said on this subject; it is conservatively forthright and explicit in its address.

What She Was Wearing by Shawn Aveningo Sanders (Autor) :
How long can you keep a dark secret before you become completely unraveled? In What She Was Wearing, Shawn Aveningo Sanders uses poetry, prose, and letters to tell her #MeToo story--one that has taken over 30 years to reveal.

In this collection, Shawn shares her nightmare of being raped at a fraternity toga party, and examines the event from a variety of perspectives, including poems written from the viewpoint of her attackers; the toga she was wearing; homecoming years later; and even the moment she told her college-aged children. As Shawn's story unfolds, the reader will come to understand how significant the aftermath of rape can be. For decades, she was "triggered" in the most unexpected ways and is just now recognizing how those triggers impacted her self-worth.

Inspired by the countless number of women who are bravely opening up to share their truth, she adds her voice to the fight against the oppressive, misogynic times we live in. It's time to stop blaming the victim and to stop asking what she was wearing! For Shawn, writing through the pain and sharing these poems has proven to be cathartic and even epiphanic at times. It is her hope this work can help women of all ages face and cope with their own traumas, while letting them know they can indeed heal and go on to enjoy loving, trusting relationships.

Cut: One Woman's Fight Against FGM in Britain Today by Hibo Wardere (Autor) .
Imagine for a moment that you are 6-years-old and you are woken in the early hours, bathed and then dressed in rags before being led down to an ominous looking tent at the end of your garden. And there, you are subjected to the cruellest cut, ordered by your own mother. Forced down on a bed, her legs held apart, Hibo Warderewas made to undergo female genital cutting, a process so brutal, she nearly died. As a teenager she moved to London in the shadow of the Somalian Civil War where she quickly learnt the procedure she had undergone in her home country was not 'normal' in the west. She embarked on a journey to understand FGM and its roots, whilst raising her own family and dealing with the devastating consequences of the cutting in her own life. Today Hibo finds herself working in London as an FGM campaigner, helping young girls whose families plan to take them abroad for the procedure. She has vowed to devote herself to the campaign against FGM. Eloquent and searingly honest, this is Hibo's memoir which promises not only to tell her remarkable story but also to shed light on a medieval practice that's being carried out in the 21st century, right on our doorstep. FGM in the UK has gone undocumented for too long and now that's going to change. Devastating, empowering and informative, this book brings to life a clash of cultures at the heart of contemporary society and shows how female genital mutilation is a very British problem.--

Violated: A Shocking and Harrowing Survival Story from the Notorious Rotherham Abuse Scandal by Sarah Wilson (Autor) ;
The shocking first true account from one of the young girls who lived through and survived the Rotherham sex abuse scandal.

In the summer of 2014, the Rotherham sex abuse scandal sent shockwaves through the nation. A report revealed that, since the 1990s, up to 1,400 young girls in the town had been regularly abused by sex gangs, predominantly comprised of Pakistani men. As the media descended on the small Yorkshire town, Sarah Wilson watched with horror and relief as her voice was finally heard after years of abuse.

Sarah was just eleven years old when she was befriended by a group of older men. Bullied at school, naive and vulnerable, the gifts and attention they lavished on her were what she craved, she just wanted to belong. But soon she was hooked on alcohol and drugs, and then they owned her. She was just twelve years old when she was bundled into a car by a man in his thirties and forced to have sex with him. Soon, the gang were driving her to places where she was raped by scores of men.

Falling through the system, from social services to school, no-one was able to help her. She escaped when she became too old for the men at nearly sixteen.

Finally a victim of the Rotherham scandal tells her story in the hope that other young girls will not fall prey to the same evil that she endured."

I'm Only a Child: Stories of abuse and mistreatment in the denied childhood of child brides by Wanda Montanelli (Autor), Linda Thody (Übersetzer) ;
Child brides sold as objects, with a rite of marriage or a simple exchange of money, to people of adult age, suffer real abuse, an act which aids paedophilia. The parties responsible are the families, which oblige their daughters to enter into forced marriages, and the men, who ”buy” a child: as a wife-slave-sexual object.The stories told in this book are true, they took place in Africa, India, Yemen, Niger, Pakistan, Syria, Mexico; places where, due to poverty, war, famine, it becomes customary for parents to sell their daughters to adult suitors in exchange for money. The psychological and physical effects are devastating for girls torn from childhood and forced into marriage: from serious diseases like HIV, medical conditions caused by teenage pregnancies, psychiatric disorders, through to a high incidence of childbirth related deaths of both mother and baby. The social denouncement aims of the #maipiùsposebambine [no more child brides] inquiry uphold the belief that joint efforts to combat the phenomenon of child marriage will further the development of an awareness by all the stakeholders: family, schools, governmental institutions. To actively contribute towards solving this serious problem the author collaborates, through the Osservatorio Onerpo [National and European monitoring centre for the safeguarding of equal opportunities] of which she is vice president, with the Girls Not Brides organisation, which, with a significant global partnership programme, plans to totally abolish forced marriage by 2030.

When Rape Becomes Acceptable: Corrective Rape in Jamaica by Kemone S. G. Brown (Autor):
What would you do if your body had been violated? Would you have the will, the energy, and the drive to survive? What if the person who violated you believed that he was doing the right thing? After all, society had provided him with reasoning for his beliefs. What would you do if someone threatened to rape you and you had nowhere or no one to turn to, no one or system to protect you? "When Rape Becomes Acceptable" deals with the issues surrounding corrective rape in Jamaica. It follows the lives of ten women who were victims of corrective rape and illustrates how each woman or her loved ones is dealing with what happened. Some of these women had the will to survive, not in the sense that they are flourishing, but they continue to live, hiding in the shadows, hiding from society who they really are; the fear of being outed again and being subjected to another instance of "corrective rape" determining how they live their lives. However, some of them were not so "lucky". They didn't have the strength to deal with or come to grips with what happened to them, so instead of having to bear the burden of what happened, they decided to end the pain and the agony as it was much easier than continuing to live. Join them as each woman tells you her story and opens up her life, her scars, her pain, her suffering as she tries to cope in a society that has not only failed to protect her but has also given rise to the violation of her body.

The Hite Report: A Nationwide Study of Female Sexuality by Shere Hite (Autor):
A reproduction of the classic text, unavailable now for more than a decade, with a new introduction by the author. The Hite Report, first published in 1976, was a sexual revolution in six hundred pages. To answer sensitive questions dealing with the most intimate details of women's sexuality, Hite's innovation was simple: she asked women, a lot of them, everything--and published the results.
One hundred thousand women, ages fourteen to seventy-eight, were asked what they do and don't like about sex; how orgasm really feels, with and without intercourse; how it feels not to have an orgasm during sex; the importance of clitoral stimulation and masturbation; and to name the greatest pleasures and frustrations of their sexual lives, among many other questions.
The Hite Report declares that orgasm is easy and strong for women, given the right stimulation; that most women have orgasm most easily during masturbation or clitoral stimulation by hand; that sex as we define it is a cultural institution, not a biological one; and that attitudes must change to include the stimulation women desire.

The G-Spot and the Clitoris: How much do men really know about them? by Dr. Julia Kinsey DipEd RACOG (Autor) :
Remember the famous Kinesy reports into sexual behaviour way back in 1948? This book is written by Dr. Alfred Kinsey's granddaughter Julia who's keeping up the family tradition. Dr. Julia Kinsey is a famed gynecologist and sexual psychologist and in these pages she reveals just how much her male patients knew about the G-Spot and the Clitoris at their first interview. Well, not really - the book actually contains some 90 odd pages of nothing - that's right it's a blank book. It's "tongue in cheek" criticism of the fact that not many men actually do know much about the subject. Feminist will love this little inexpensive gift. When it was only a badly produced, photocopied book it was still a great seller at women's lingerie parties because it took the piss out of men. It's a fantastic book to have laying around on the kitchen worktop or the coffee table when you have visitors because nobody can resist picking it up to see what's inside.

The Clitoral Truth, 2nd Edition by Rebecca Chalker (Autor):
he Clitoral Truth goes beyond all other sexuality self-help guides by providing a surprising “inside” look at women’s genital anatomy, and revealing that what is almost universally thought of as a sensitive pea-sized nubbin is, in reality, a powerful, responsive organ system. The Clitoral Truth reveals every aspect of this multifaceted organ and how the parts work together to produce pleasure and orgasm.

This frank, frisky, user-friendly guide also delves into the controversy over female ejaculation and explores why so few women have discovered their potential to experience multiple orgasms. It also reports on why so many women of all ages fake orgasms, and it settles the controversy over the G-Spot once and for all. Can’t find your G-Spot? Hey, you’ve got something better! Here are vivid personal accounts, a savvy, in-depth survey of female sexuality resources, and the bold and explicit illustrations of San Francisco artist Fish. The Clitoral Truth surveys the numerous ways that women have begun to transform the deeply entrenched male-centered model of sexuality to actively redefine it by emphasizing full-body pleasure. And, likely, better orgasms!

Women & Power: A Manifesto by Mary Beard (Autor):
THE NUMBER 1 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 24 CONSECUTIVE WEEKS IN THE SUNDAY TIMES TOP 10 Why the popular resonance of 'mansplaining' (despite the intense dislike of the term felt by many men)? It hits home for us because it points straight to what it feels like not to be taken seriously: a bit like when I get lectured on Roman history on Twitter. Britain's best-known classicist Mary Beard, is also a committed and vocal feminist. With wry wit, she revisits the gender agenda and shows how history has treated powerful women. Her examples range from the classical world to the modern day, from Medusa and Athena to Theresa May and Hillary Clinton. Beard explores the cultural underpinnings of misogyny, considering the public voice of women, our cultural assumptions about women's relationship with power, and how powerful women resist being packaged into a male template. With personal reflections on her own experiences of the sexism and gendered aggression she has endured online, Mary asks: if women aren't perceived to be within the structures of power, isn't it power that we need to redefine? From the author of international bestseller SPQR: A History of Ancient Rome.
