Pornography Feminism: As Powerful as She Wants to Be by Rich Moreland When Rich Moreland negotiated the alleyway to an obscure warehouse in downtown Los Angeles, a surprise awaited him. The young woman he met had an unexpected past. She grew up within earshot of his home in the Washington DC suburbs, a continent away. Inside, flood lights and an understated busyness prepared for the work day. The journalist and sultry twenty-something would be on opposite sides of the camera when "all quiet" took over the set. So began another shoot in the everflowing world of filmed pornography.

Rich Moreland's Pornography Feminism: As Powerful as She Wants to be is a revealing look at adult film performers and directors who claim a feminist label. An aberration in the eyes of traditional feminism, these women are, in the author's words, "The neglected stepchildren of the movement, pushed into the corner to eat their gruel and suffer for their errant ways."

Their tribulations and successes are gathered into a popular history sprinkled with academic research, travels through the adult industry, and contemporary interviews. Pornography Feminism reveals that commercially filmed sex carries social and political messages far beyond adult film as bawdy entertainment.

When the warehouse shoot wrapped up, the porn star and the writer chatted about her on-screen image that gave her so much satisfaction that afternoon. Picking up her check she bade farewell, but not for long because an industry always in motion presents innumerable opportunities. They would meet again.
