Healing a Culture Wounded by Porn Use

Katherine Blakeman, Director of Communications, recently addressed how to “heal a culture so wounded by porn and abuse” on the Drew Mariani radio show on Relevant Radio. This invitation came in response to the recent events surrounding the Harvey Weinstein scandal and the #MeToo grassroots campaign.

Blakeman points out the harms of pornography, citing research that connects this harmful content with sexual assault. She discusses the power #MeToo has in generating awareness of sexual harassment, Dawn Hawkins’ article on her personal #MeToo experience, and why it’s important that we don’t let the #MeToo momentum fade as just another hashtag.

Blakeman also discusses how we are no longer safe from exposure to pornography in our own homes, and thanks to mainstream companies like Amazon and Twitter, YouTube and EBSCO, sexual harassment is distributed as entertainment. We must speak out against sexual harassment by holding these companies accountable for spreading this emotional, sexual, and physical violence.
