Women Against Pornography
Women Against Pornography was founded in 1979. The organization sought to educate men and women about what it saw as the essence of pornography: the degradation, objectification, and brutalization of women. To this end it offered slide shows and lectures, maintained a referral service for victims of sexual exploitation, compiled statistics, organized protests, and sponsored tours of New York City's Times Square area. WAP was disbanded in 1990. The collection includes correspondence, reports and studies, press releases, published and unpublished articles, material re: pornography legislation and sex discrimination cases, and clippings.
