Pornography Feminism: As Powerful as She Wants to Be by Rich Moreland Pornography feminists unshackle their desires and celebrate their sexuality in the patriarchal world of filmed sex. In today's adult film industry a small group of feminist performers, producers, and directors are influencing a business that is the longstanding domain of men. These women are using their own brand of feminist erotica to create a film genre in pornography that rivals the traditional male gaze. 

Publishing in January 2015 on Zero Books (imprint of John Hunt Publishing Ltd), Pornography Feminism: As Powerful as She Wants to Be by Rich Moreland.

ISBN: 978-1-78279-496-7 (Paperback) £14.99 $24.95
EISBN: 978-1-78279-495-0 (eBook) £6.99 $9.99

During the sex wars of the 1980s, sex-positive feminism entered the adult film industry with a performer support group known as Club 90. Over the next three decades feminism found a home among an influential group of women in pornography.

Pornography Feminism: As Powerful as She Wants to Be is a popular history of this unfolding saga told largely through personal interviews along with scholarly works, previous popular histories, and film reviews.

Historically feminism's second wave was roiled by the pornography debate, and the emergence of sex-positive feminism within the adult film industry became part of that contentious time for women. The project traces the roots of porn feminism and examines issues facing feminists in the business today. Biographical material on selected pro-porn feminists in adult film is included, among them Spain's Erika Lust.

Rich Moreland has created a rich and comprehensive study of “pornography feminism” in a style that is accessible to students, academics and laypersons alike. I’m impressed with the depth of material Moreland covers and his willingness not only to take on a subject steeped in controversy and challenge both his own long-held views as well as those of the community at large; but having done so, to come out on the side of the less-popular stance – and have the courage to say so! Bravo Professor Moreland! - Candida Royalle, D.H.S., Author, Erotic Filmmaker & Entrepreneur
