TL;DR: The literature on women as mentioned in this paper is a long rumination on the question of the nature and genesis of women's oppression and social subordination, which forms the basis for any assessment of just what would have to be changed in order to achieve a society without gender hierarchy.
Abstract: The literature on women—both feminist and antifeminist—is a long rumination on the question of the nature and genesis of women's oppression and social subordination. The question is not a trivial one, since the answers given it determine our visions for the future, and our evaluation of whether or not it is realistic to hope for a sexually egalitarian society. More important, the analysis of the causes of women's oppression forms the basis for any assessment of just what would have to be changed in order to achieve a society without gender hierarchy. Thus, if innate male aggression and dominance are at the root of female oppression, then the feminist program would logically require either the extermination of the offending sex, or else a eugenics project to modify its character. If sexism is a byproduct of capitalism's relendess appetite for profit, then sexism would wither away in the advent of a successful socialist revolution. If the world-historical defeat of women occurred at the hands of an armed patriarchal revolt, then it is time for Amazon guerrillas to start training in the Adirondacks. It lies outside the scope of this paper to conduct a sustained critique of some of the currendy popular explanations of the genesis of sexual inequality— theories such as the popular evolution exemplified by The Imperial

Journal Article
TL;DR: In this article, the authors describe the most common and newest technologies, and how they are used for the sexual exploitation of women and children, and describe how these technologies enable sexual predators to harm or exploit women or children efficiently and anonymously.
Abstract: New communications and information technologies have created a global revolution in communications, access to information, and media delivery. These new communications and information technologies are facilitating the sexual exploitation of women and girls locally, nationally and transnationally. The sexual exploitation of women and children is a global human rights crisis that is being escalated by the use of new technologies. Using new technologies, sexual predators and pimps stalk women and children. New technical innovations facilitate the sexual exploitation of women and children because they enable people to easily buy, sell and exchange millions of images and videos of sexual exploitation of women and children. These technologies enable sexual predators to harm or exploit women and children efficiently and, anonymously. The affordability and access to global communications technologies allow users to carry out these activities in the privacy of their home. The increase of types of media, media formats, and applications diversifies the means by which sexual predators can reach their victims. This paper will not attempt to categorize all the types and uses of this new technology. However, this paper will describe the most common and newest of these technologies, and how they are used for the sexual exploitation of women and children.
