The Politics of Legal Challenges

Max Waltman

  • Offers a uniquely comprehensive, cross-disciplinary analysis of the associations between pornography and violence against women, including prostitution
  • Explains why democracies, time and again, fail to address the severe harms of pornography
  • Thoroughly explores why previous attempts to legally address the harms have failed, what lessons can be learned, and how future legal challenges could be made successful
  • Interrogates the mechanisms of how pornography contributes to women's subordination, and supports a legal means of protecting and advancing women's rights
