Pornographic Performances – OBJECT / Imkaan

This report explores the prevalent racism and sexism in music videos. Pornographic Performances was commissioned by the EVAW CoalitionObject and the black feminist organisation Imkaan  and is being sent to music industry leaders, media regulators and politicians with recommendations for change. Government and regulators are asked to consider urgently the ‘stick’ of introducing compulsory age ratings for music videos, while music industry leaders are asked to take the ‘carrot’ of reviewing the evidence as presented, listening to young women’s views on the content of many music videos, and changing what they choose to commission and portray accordingly.
