Save the Date!
Join us to learn about the harms of pornography through a feminist lens this coming October! This two-day ICESA training will take place at Butler University in Indianapolis, and will feature Dr. Gail Dines, Dr. Robert Jensen, and Lisa Thompson. Dr. Gail Dines is a professor of sociology and women’s studies at Wheelock College in Boston, as well as an internationally-acclaimed speaker, focusing on hypersexualization of culture and the effects of porn on mainstream pop culture. Dr. Robert Jensen is a professor of journalism at the University of Texas at Austin who has critiqued the pathology of patriarchy and its place in today’s crises. Lisa Thompson is the Vice President of Education and Outreach for the National Center on Sexual Exploitation where she has focused on the harms of pornography, stripping, prostitution, and sex trafficking. We are so excited to be able to bring these three fabulous speakers to Indiana!

This event will also feature two documentary screenings, a panel discussion featuring feminist scholars and experts, and workshops designed for advocates/counselors and prevention specialists. Our two featured documentaries are The Price of Pleasure and Not Just Pictures.
