In today’s #MeToo culture, where sexual harassment and assault are rampant, corporations like Comcast have a renewed corporate responsibility to refrain from facilitating or profiting from material that promotes sexual exploitation. However, […]
The Fifty Shades franchise is advertised as an erotic romance, but in reality it is a story of sexual violence. Fifty Shades Freed, irresponsibly and dangerously legitimizes sexual violence against women and encourages women to accept this type of abuse as normal or even desirable.
