Free lunchtimne talk: The power of pornography

You are invited to a free Lunchtime Soapbox talk entitled:

The Power of Pornography by Anne Mayne

Anne Mayne was recently asked to write a chapter about the impact of pornography on South African society by an Australian publishing house which is putting together a new book called Big Porn Inc. Anne will talk about the very disturbing research she conducted in the process of writing her contribution to Big Porn Inc.

Anne Mayne is an activist against violence against women and a co-founder of Cape Town Feminists and Rape Crisis Cape. She worked in the Campaign Against Pornography in London and is now vice-chairperson of Embrace Dignity, an organisation that campaigns against trafficking in women and girls.

A delicious and affordable (from R35) brown bag lunch will be on sale at the venue.
