Summary

Summary

A refreshing critique of liberal and radical feminist perspectives on pornography.'One new feminist book I have welcomed is Alison Assiter's. ... It deserves careful reading.' Elizabeth Wilson'Assiter's book offers an interesting commentary, explaining what is wrong with porn, but also illuminating the failure of the radical feminist critique of porn and the inadequacy of censorship.' Labour/Le Travail
