Banning Child Pornography: Women’s Political Participation and Domestic Regulation

Presenter: Minju Kwon

Why do some states establish more robust legislative bans on child pornography than others? Despite the development of international institutions created to protect children from sexual violence, laws prohibiting child pornography still significantly vary from state to state. This research will be the first large-N cross-national analysis of the causal factors that affect states’ varying degrees of domestic regulations of child pornography. Taking the position that child pornography is primarily a gender issue, I predict that a state with a higher degree of women’s political participation is more likely to legislate more comprehensive child pornography bans. By statistically analyzing an original dataset that includes the varying strength of domestic regulations in 196 countries from 2006 to 2018, I investigate how women’s political participation in three types of institutions—legislative systems, cabinet systems, and civil society organizations—affects child pornography bans.…

Fierce Femmes Book Cover

Fierce Femmes And Notorious Liars: A Dangerous Trans Girl's Confabulous Memoir is the highly sensational, ultra-exciting, sort-of true coming-of-age story of a young Asian trans girl, pathological liar, and kung-fu expert who runs away from her parents' abusive home in a rainy city called Gloom. Striking off on her own, she finds her true family in a group of larger-than-life trans femmes who live in a mysterious pleasure district known only as the Street of Miracles. Under the wings of this fierce and fabulous flock, the protagonist blossoms into the woman she has always dreamed of being, with a little help from the unscrupulous Doctor Crocodile. When one of their number is brutally murdered, she joins her sisters in forming a vigilante gang to fight back against the transphobes, violent johns, and cops that stalk the Street of Miracles. But when things go terribly wrong, she must find the truth within herself in order to stop the violence and discover what it really means to grow up and find your family.…
