Iceland has been called the world’s most feminist country. Ranking first in the 2012 Global Gender Gap Report, the country sucessfully banned strip clubs, adopted feminist legislation around prostitution, decriminalizing sex workers and criminalizing the men who buy sex, and have legislated against printing and distributing porn.

Now, the progressive country is considering banning hardcore pornography online.

While some are concerned about the ways in which this kind of ban could impact free speech on the web, the proposal has garned a great deal of support.

In this episode, Meghan Murphy speaks with Gail Dines, professor of sociology and women’s studies at Wheelock College in Boston, the author of “Pornland: How Porn has Hijacked our Sexuality,” and a founding member of Stop Porn Culture about the proposal.
