As you are probably aware, the world is standing on the precipice of enormous change for women and children. For the first time in modern history, a nation -- Iceland -- has stepped forward to write progressive legislation that limits access to hard-core violent and abusive pornography. Arguing that Iceland has a compelling interest in the well being of all of its children, and gender equality, the Icelandic government is taking a stand against a porn industry that has grown increasingly cruel and misogynist. The government is crafting a law that targets only the most violent of pornography. However, we are writing to you because a letter signed by 60 internationally recognized opinion makers has been made public, vehemently opposing Iceland's efforts. The Prime Minister of Iceland and her cabinet have received the letter and need immediate, concrete support from thought leaders, academics, and activists on their side. Please sign this petition to show your support for Iceland's ban on violent pornography.
