“Catharine A. MacKinnon is a renowned lawyer, teacher & activist on sex-equality issues. MacKinnon pioneered the legal claim for sexual harassment as a form of sex discrimination, and conceived ordinances recognizing pornography as a civil rights violation. The U.S. Supreme Court accepted her theory of sexual harassment in 1986.

She is Special Gender Adviser to the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court & works with Equality Now, an NGO promoting sex equality, & the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women.”
