End Demand campaign
The End Demand campaign's choice to use photographs of women, semi dressed, gained without their consent, to create a fake escort site sickens me. Our dead sisters are NOT a political football for you to kick around the Internet to have your "Aha! She's dead!" moment with sex buyers. Feminist Current's supportive and ignorant coverage of this campaign leaves me so disappointed. I feel like I'm going to throw up.
When women are murdered by sex buyers, and mainstream media coverage implies their life had little to no value because of their involvement in the sex industry, feminists challenge this. We must hold our own campaigns and own media to the same standards.
