This past week, a document titled ‘Report on eliminating Gender Stereotypes in the EU (European Union)’ was introduced on International Women’s Day. The report was put together with the intention of advocating for effective sanctions on the companies and individuals promoting the sexualization of girls. The report caused an uproar across the blogosphere as some believe that it is laying the groundwork for internet censorship. The European Parliament will be voting on whether to endorse the conclusions of the report prepared by the Committee on Women’s Rights and Gender Equality on March 12th.
With all the articles being written on the matter, we thought we would discuss the matter at hand along with talking about our thoughts on pornography – Are civil liberties the main thing that should taken into consideration? Should the impact that the porn industry has on others be taken into account? What (if any) impact does pornography have on women in particular and gender equality? How does its usage effect us personally?
We hope to see you there!
