NCOSE Submits Reports to the United Nations: Gender-Based Torture Found in Porn Industry & On a Street Corner Near You: Pimps as Practitioners of Torture

WE ARE SENDING A MESSAGE TO THE UNITED NATIONS

Now is the time to stand up for all people to be free from sexual exploitation, objectification, and violence.

This is why the National Center on Sexual Exploitation submitted two important reports to help inform the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture.

These documents, The Gender-Based Torture Found in the Pornography Industry and On a Street Corner Near You: Pimps as Practitioners of Torture, addressed research and precedent in international codes that the UN ought to apply to a formal recognition of pornography and prostitution as forms of torture. The experiences of physical, mental, and verbal abuse and degradation commonly experienced in both pornography and prostitution are consistent with torture, and should be addressed accordingly.

I hope that these reports will inform the United Nations’ policies regarding these subjects in the future. It is an incredible honor to be able to raise our voice and represent our movement on an international level! Thank you for standing with us for this worthy cause.
