Critical criminological understandings of adult pornography and woman abuse: New progressive directions in research and theory
DeKeseredy, Walter S. (2015) Critical criminological understandings of adult pornography and woman abuse: New progressive directions in research and theory. International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy, 4(4), pp. 4-21.
There is a small, but growing, social scientific literature on the racist and violent nature of contemporary adult pornography. However, considerably more empirical and theoretical work needs to be done to advance a critical criminological understanding of how such hurtful sexual media contribute to various forms of woman abuse in intimate relationships. The main objective of this article is to briefly review the relevant literature and to suggest a few new progressive empirical and theoretical directions.
