Battling Pornography: Listen to the Ladies

Battling Pornography: Listen to the Ladies

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has launched a new website designed to increase public awareness of the agency's efforts to combat broadcast obscenity, indecency, and profanity. The website explains the FCC's rules, definitions, and procedures in a user-friendly format. The agency has often been criticized by pro-family forces for failing to vigorously enforce federal laws.

The FCC's action comes as the Harris Poll released findings from a new survey. While Harris headlines the supposed lack of consensus among American adults on what to do about pornography, the results make clear that American women have strong and defined views of the subject. Sixty-two percent of women believe pornography "raises men's expectations of how women should look"; fifty-eight percent of women said it "changes men's expectations of how women should behave." How come liberals and feminist leaders aren't hailing these survey results? Interestingly, the poll also found that only 10 percent of all respondents thought that government has no role with respect to pornography and only one percent thought all forms of pornography should be legalized.
