Scottish Women Against Pornography – Group Award Nominee – 2001

The group was formed by individual women and community groups having concerns about the proliferation of pornographic materials, its increasing availability, and the relationship to violence against women. It organised the ‘Off the Shelf Campaign 1999’ in response to local concerns about sexually explicit and violent material in neighbourhood shops. Recently, partly due to their efforts, the Glasgow City Council took a stance against pornography in public areas.
