France's High Council for Equality Between Women and Men, a governmental body established by President Francois Hollande in 2013 to make policy recommendations to France's prime minister, released a report on Sept. 27 blasting violent and degrading pornography for leading to rapes and femicides and the abuse of women within pornography. The report recommends legal actions against porn sites, including blocking and fining sites that lack effective age controls.
