Violence against women is one of the biggest societal problems. It affects women and girls all over the world. Regardless of age, orientation or ethnicity.

According to the UN one in three women in the world is exposed to violence during their lifetime. It takes from women the freedom to live a safe life. It is unfair. Violence against women is a structural problem, but still it is always seen as individual cases. The violence many women are exposed to is normalized, also in Norway.

Limits us

Violence is everything from physical beatings to psychological violence and sexual violence, such as rape and sexual harassment. In Norway stays almost one in ten women exposed to rape at least once in their lifetime. In addition shows figures from Ipsos that 43 percent of women over the age of 17 have experienced forms of sexual harassment.

Sex without consent is rape, while in porn it is what is defined as sex, writes Julia Pigao (17).

Girls in high school are particularly vulnerable. 40 percent of all girls has been sexually harassed in the last year. Many girls live in fear of abuse. Girls are often told that we should not go alone in the evening or not dress in a certain way.

We take all precautions not to be raped. I feel we are taught that we are to blame if an abuse happens. It limits the lives of women and girls.

Porn culture normalizes violence

Rape and sexual harassment are also violence. But it is largely normalized – through porn. The porn industry is a billion-dollar industry that makes money from sexualizing women. Women in the porn industry is produced as an object only for men’s pleasure. It is also not uncommon for women to be exposed to violence.

It is also important to remember that much of the “amateur porn” that is posted is not necessarily voluntary on the part of the woman. Porn is dangerous to society, I mean. And especially for young boys who have their first encounter with sex through watching it.

Adolescent sexuality is influenced by porn. The girls are portrayed as passive, while the boys are portrayed as brutal and dominant. Porn is violent and extreme, and therefore helps to normalize the sexual violence that far too many women are exposed to.

Consent is not a practice in porn, and has not until recently become more normalized in society otherwise. Sex without consent is rape, while in porn this is what is defined as sex.

More violence during the pandemic

Violence has increased during the corona pandemic. Too many women have the requirement to stay at home been life threatening. The community has been closed, and this may lead to some women losing access to vital aid agencies.

Many women have been caught at home with a violent partner during the pandemic. This has led to even more women than before have been subjected to violence.

Women and girls all over the world live in fear of being exposed to violence. Violence against women is a major societal problem and porn normalizes it.

This limits the lives of women and girls. It is unfair. A life free from violence is a prerequisite for freedom.
