A diverse spectrum of leaders from around the country, brought together as members of the Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation, discussed the issue of pornography and the pervasive influence sexual exploitation has on our society. The Coalition also announced their summit, held on May 16-17 in Tysons Corner, VA, hosted by Morality in Media.
Featured speakers included experts Dr. Donald L. Hilton, acclaimed neurosurgeon and researcher on the addictive nature of pornography; Dr. Gail Dines, leading feminist activist, author, and scholar; Dr. Mary Anne Layden, the director of the Sexual Trauma and Psychopathology Program at the University of Pennsylvania; former porn film producer Donny Pauling; and Clay Olsen, Co-Founder & Executive Director of Fight the New Drug.
The summit brought together groups from all facets of this universal movement—from feminists to faith-based groups—who recognize and understand the varied harms of pornography and all forms of sexual exploitation.
The Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation is focused on uniting the efforts of organizations and leaders across the nation to solve and end the complex social issue of sexual exploitation and its associated companion—pornography.
