One of the more interesting, and at times more strident, debates in recent years is between a faction of the feminist coalition, proposing new and harsher methods of eliminating pornography and of punishing those who produce and purvey it, and civil libertarians, including many other feminists, who oppose such measures primarily on First Amendment grounds. The debate extends well beyond the cloistered halls of academe, and is far from arcane or hypothetical.
