Collective Shout
“… a grassroots campaigns movement against the objectification of women and the sexualisation of girls.
“Collective Shout is for anyone concerned about the increasing pornification of culture and the way its messages have become entrenched in mainstream society, presenting distorted and dishonest ideas about women and girls, sexuality and relationships.”

Stop Patriarchy
“End pornography and patriarchy: The enslavement and degradation of women”
http://www.stoppatriarchy.org

A culture fixated on female thinness is not an obsession about female beauty, but an obsession about female obedience. Dieting is the most potent political sedative in women’s history; a quietly mad population is a tractable one.
― Naomi Wolf, The Beauty Myth

 … pornography is the bible of sexual abuse; is a chapter and verse; pornography is the law on what you do to a woman when you want to have mean fun on her body and she’s no one at all…  She’s at the bottom of the barrel.

The plague of pornography is swirling about us as never before. Pornography brings a vicious wake of immorality, broken homes, and broken lives. Pornography will sap spiritual strength to endure. Pornography is much like quicksand. You can become so easily trapped and overcome as soon as you step into it that you do not realize the severe danger. Most likely you will need assistance to get out of the quicksand of pornography. But how much better it is never to step into it. I plead with you to be careful and cautious. 
―Joseph B. Wirthlin
