Show Notes:

Meghan Murphy interviews Melinda Tankard Reist, editor of Big Porn Inc: Exposing the harms of the global pornography industry.

Pornography is a different beast than it was decades ago, particularly as a result of the Internet. Big Porn Inc, now available in Canada and the U.S., features some of the most well-known writers and researchers whose work looks at pornography, including Catherine MacKinnon, Robert Jensen, Melissa Farley, Sheila Jeffreys, and many more. It is certainly the most comprehensive and current look at pornography to date.

Melinda Tankard Reist, who co-edited the book with Abigail Bray, is an Australian author, speaker, media commentator, blogger and advocate for women and girls. She is very well known for her work on the objectification of women and sexualization of girls and for working to address violence against women.
