Pornography: Men Possessing
Andrea DworkinG.P. Putnam Sons1981

Pornography: Men Possessing Women is a 1981 book about pornography in which Andrea Dworkin analyzes (and extensively cites examples drawn from) contemporary and historical pornography as an industry that hates and dehumanizes women. Dworkin argues that the industry is implicated in violence against women, both in its production (through the abuse of the women that are used to star in it) and in the social consequences of its consumption by encouraging men to eroticize the domination, humiliation and abuse of women.
