Project Description

Jennifer Lawrence called non-consensual pornography a sex crime: “Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this,” she says. “It does not mean that it comes with the territory. It’s my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting. I can’t believe that we even live in that kind of world.”

When Jeniffer Lawrence became a victim of non-consensual pornography, she was one of the first celebrities to call out the fact that she should not be blamed. Celebrities who had previously become a victim of non-consensual pornography either apologised for taking private images in the first place, or made a joke about how good they looked in the picture. Lawrence spoke out against non-consensual pornography, and thus made people aware of the fact they were contributing to the harm done to her by looking at her images without her consent. Although she considers non-consensual pornography a sex-crime, in most countries this is not yet the case.
