About this Event
From sex-doll brothels, 3D pornography, and child-sex abuse dolls and robots there is a growing normalisation of sex dolls and robots in the form of women and girls in our society. What is the feminist response to this? How will these new technological developments impact on women and girls? This is the first international feminist workshop to examine how robotics and AI is joining with the sex industry to attack women and girls in new ways.
We urgently need to debate the growing normalisation of sex dolls and sex robots and build a feminist response to this attack on what it means to be a woman.
